A Brooklyn landmark

The area is very beautiful and Prospect Park is nearby. The monument is towering, so you cannot miss it. Worth visiting

Love the calm around the plaza and the architecture surrounding the area. It's also such a short walk to Prospect park. Who knew there is such great place to visit outside of the city.

Start at the bottom of the park, swing past the arborerum, the museum, and sit here for a break. The arch is pretty cool. The traffic somewhat relaxing. Maybe we were dehydrated...

This is a very cool and majestic bit of Brooklyn history, but you do not need to spend a whole lot of time admiring it.

Drove either side of this on the Brooklyn tour and is a very impresive monument to many great people in American history

The area is like a Paris thoroughfare, reminiscent of the Arc De Triomphe and the traffic circle around it. The arch is beautiful and at certain times you can go inside and up to the top to see the gorgeous views of Prospect Park and the brownstones of Park Slope. The carved statues on the arch are incredible and the... More
