Did you realize that there used to be a working dairy in Prospect Park?! The Dairy’s cows provided fresh milk for sale. Before pasteurization, access to fresh milk was vitally important. Once spoiled, the liquid could make children sick. Just a decade before the opening of Prospect Park, contaminated milk gripped NY public consciousness in the 1850s with the deadly Swill Milk Scandal.
