CENTRAL PARK: The Lungs of the City as a Skyscraper

When I visited Central Park earlier this year with our guests from out-of-town I could not help but to image this incredible space as an edifice.  Architects have always been fascinated with towers and skyscrapers.

What if we turned Central Park from the horizontal to the vertical.  Of course the image below is very literal, but–

Can we apply some of the theories of Fredrick Olmsted to a skyscraper in the city?  Could this be the beginning of the resurgence of the city?
