Street Near Olmsted's Staten Island Farm
Co-Named in His Honor
The Friends of Olmsted-Beil House was delighted to join with New York City Council Minority Leader Joseph C. Borelli on August 26, 2022, to celebrate the co-naming of Woods of Arden Road as “Frederick Law Olmsted Way.” Woods of Arden Road is the road nearest to Olmsted-Beil House Park, the site of Olmsted’s former farm and house. When Olmsted owned the property, it was the main road through his farm, extending over a mile from the current Amboy Road past Hylan Blvd. and down to the edge of Raritan Bay.
