On the Top Ten List of NYC Architecture
Grand Army Plaza provides the grandest of park entryways in New York City’s answer to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. Conceived as a memorial to the defenders of the Union in the Civil War, the elaborately carved Arch is also a base for a series of inspired bronze sculpture groupings that soar over the Plaza. On the ground, bold statues surround the massive arch, including a noted bust of President John F. Kennedy, and the mythical tableau atop the famous Bailey Fountain.
Do not be confused with this Statue and the Grand Army Plaza at Central Park also conceived as a memorial to the defenders of the Union in the Civil War.
