One of my favorite spots to stop relax and watch the sprinkling water coming out of the statues in the park. At the entrance across the street from the Brooklyn Public Library is The Soldier and Sailor Memorial Arch. If You Stand Underneath It you ill See A Great Piece Of Art. A great Memorial To Some US Troops From A Long Gone Era. Take Pictures... Its Really A Great Sight!!

This arch with its stunning statues of Grant and Lincoln on horseback, along with street names like Lincoln and Union, is a reminder that this neighborhood was built in the years after the Civil War. It is really a triumphal arch. Beautifully lit at night, with gently varying shadings of color. Tastefully decorated with a Christmas Tree over the holidays, with an enormous Hannukah display across the street. This arch is a real center of the neighborhood. It marks the entrance to Prospect Park and the lovely open space behind it which Flatbush Avenue goes around. The classic Art Deco main branch of the Brooklyn Public Library complements its structure. Definitely a destination in Park Slope,

Like a dominant among the busy intersection, and you can get to a beautiful little park inside it. The arch itself reserve a special attention.

The Memorial Arch is one of the main attractions when coming out to Grand Army Plaza. Unfortunately, the day I arrived with friends it was raining so we could only view it from our car.

On a sunny day is a short walk before you take a bigger walk into Prospekt Park take a look on this beautiful arch. There is a fountain inside (behind) this monument.
