A new WNED-TV production, premieres Monday, May 4 at 9 p.m.
(repeats May 9 at 2:30 a.m. and May 10 at 3 p.m.)
Frederick Law Olmsted, America’s first and best-known landscape architect, created an enduring legacy in Western New York. Perhaps best known for his design of New York City’s Central Park, Olmsted had a powerful and lasting influence on Western New York.
“Frederick Law Olmsted: Designing Western New York” is a one-hour original WNED-TV production that captures the architect’s impact throughout Western New York. The program includes documentary segments that capture the history and context for Olmsted’s contributions and interviews with local experts that focus on how that legacy is being carried into the future.
Olmsted designed the Buffalo Park System, the first of its kind in the world. Buffalo is where Olmsted first coined the term “parkways” to describe the grand tree-lined boulevards that connected the three parks within the system.
While he was working in Buffalo, Olmsted visited Niagara Falls and was troubled by what he saw. Factories lined the rapids, and fences blocked the best views and allowed the charging of admission to see the falls. Olmsted’s support for the Free Niagara movement led to Niagara Falls becoming America’s first state park.
One of Olmsted’s allies in the Free Niagara movement was renowned architect H.H. Richardson. In 1880, Richardson completed work on the Buffalo State Asylum for the Insane, one of the best examples in America of the Richardson Romanesque architectural style. Olmsted and his partner Calvert Vaux designed the landscape for the 203-acre site.
“Frederick Law Olmsted: Designing Western New York” tells the story of all three of these Olmsted contributions. The program also provides a contemporary perspective on Olmsted’s enduring Western New York legacy by examining the current status of the Buffalo Park System, the restoration of Olmsted’s vision for Goat Island at Niagara Falls and the rebirth of what has become known as the Richardson Olmsted Complex.
The program includes interviews with Stephanie Crockatt, interim executive director, Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy; Monica Pellegrino Faix, executive director, Richardson Olmsted Complex; Mark Thomas, director, Western District, New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.

WNED-TV is one of the most watched PBS television stations. Since 1977, Classical 94.5 has offered round the clock classical music. WBFO is already a compelling News & Information station and is growing every day. All three of your stations could be so much stronger. But they need to be financially supported by the people that use them.
The PBS/NPR industry average of member-to-audience is 7%. WNED|WBFO are at only 4%, which is hard to understand.
