A series profiling the New Yorkers who make our city work
Larry Hagberg, Blacksmith

In Central Park around 86th Street burns a forge, and next to it stands Larry Hagberg, blacksmith. Larry performs this ancient craft to meet the NYC Parks department’s present-day needs. He heats steel and beats it into the day’s necessary form, whether it’s a lantern key, a bench divider, or his own personal artwork.
