Grand Army Plaza


Spokesman at Grand Army Plaza at Fifth Avenue and 59th Street and to the left The Sherman Monument by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Grand Army Plaza is a focal point of midtown Manhattan, offering an elegant transition to the Park from nearby skyscrapers. Is in fact, two plazas — each a semicircle bisected by Central Park South. Both halves are surrounded on their curvilinear ends by Bradford Callery Pear trees, which provide a natural frame. The split plaza was inspired by the design of the Place de la Concorde in Paris.
