Built Up

Central Park (Pixabay)

"The time will come when New York will be built up, when all the grading and filling will be done, and when the picturesquely—varied, rocky formations of the Island will have been converted into foundations for rows of monotonous straight streets, and piles of erect, angular buildings. There will be no suggestion left of its present varied surface, with the single exception of the Park."
Frederick Law Olmsted, A Clearing in the Distance
