Thanks Mark. Glad you enjoyed the pics. There is some great monumentation in NY from nationally recognized artists.Although I was aware of its purpose, never had the chance to stop and take in the Grand Army Plaza -- it was always something to get around driving on my way to somewhere else (usually work).
As a lifetime NYC resident, this thread reminded me how much can be missed when always in a hurry.
Thanks Pat for the guided tour and pics. History surrounds us, we just have to open our eyes to see it.
The park has Revolutionary War sites, a colonial era homestead, a great zoo, tennis courts, an equestrian center, an environmental studies center, lots of ball fields, a doggie beach, and dozens of statues and monuments.Years back, my sister had an apartment nearby. Nearby also is the Brooklyn Public Library and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. My Mom loved botanic gardens and visited many of them: She said Brookly had one of the nicest she'd seen.
