Madison Square is always a pleasant place for a stroll - the parks are, in general, one of the nicest aspects of the New York experience, & each & every one of them is worth a visit. In this park are several interesting statues, including President Chester Arthur, Republican kingmaker Roscoe Conkling, War-Between-the-States Union Admiral David Farragut, & War-Between-the-States Secretary of State William Seward. The park is flanked by interesting buildings, including the Flatiron Building, the New York Life Insurance Building, & the pencil-thin One Madison Park. Immediately to the west, in the triangle between 5th Avenue, Broadway, 24th Street & 25th Street, is the grave monument of William Worth, great hero of the Mexican War. As everywhere in New York, it's worth inspecting the area with the architectural book AAA GUIDE TO NEW YORK CITY.
