The Cedar Playground property, named for its location between Cedar and Sedgewick Avenues and West 179th Street, once belonged to Dr. George Cammann, the first man to successfully market the binaural stethoscope, the tool doctors use to listen to the heartbeat. Cedar Playground contains no cedars, but the park does boast American elm and sweetgum trees.
