This is a monument to the Union soldiers at the entrance to Prospect Park.It's gorgeous to stop and view.When you look at the statues you will see young black soldiers who fought and died for their freedom.The Green market is also very good to go to when it's there.

We were here for a show before the fireworks started on New Years Eve. This is a cool little plaza with statues and fountains near a residential area of Brooklyn, at the peak of Prospect Park. It was nice to visit at night. I would recommend coming here and seeing all the statues.

This structure is an imposing Arch in a classical mode. It demarks the entrance to Prospect Park and the Public Library. All three are worth a visit with your family or loved one. It is one of Brooklyn's precious sites.

This would be a beautiful space were it not for the fact it is a huge traffic circle. Architecturally beautiful, it is at the entrance of Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Public Library. On Saturday, a terrific farmer's market (though a little pricey). So visit, if only on your way elsewhere.

There is no place in Manhattan, a/k/a "the City," like Grand Army Plaza. There is no place in San Francisco, where I live. Maybe Paris or Vienna has a spot that's comparable, but I don't know of another on this continent. Grand Army Plaza is a plaza that is grand, with an archway, a circular drive, a library, a large...

Impressive grand stone arch with large-scale bronze sculptures, dedicated to Union soldiers who fought in the Civil War. Don't miss the interior reliefs of Lincoln and Grant. Take a few minutes to admire the Bailey Fountain (1929-1932) - a beautiful play of sea creatures and male and female standing figures. You will think you are in Europe.

So close to the facade of the Public Library, there was also a market on the day we visited - not that I was interested, there was also parks close by, such a grand structure. Intricate in detail, huge in appearance and there is also a fountain further down.

We have been trying to get here on several other visits to NYC and finally made it this time. However we wish we would've waited for better weather. It was raining (pouring actually) but it was our last day to be there, so we went anyways. I didn't realize everything that was so close. We will definitely be back on... More
