The view across the river to New Jersey
I enter the park at 89th St and each time I see the memorial to the Union fallen of the Civil War, the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial. Until I took pictures to share I had no idea of its history. But thanks to Google, I discovered that it was built in 1902 and the owner of the mansion across the street sued the City of New York, under the premise that the memorial would block her view.
This shows the names of the battles on one of the sculptures adjoining the main monument
Hope you enjoyed sharing spring in New York City, especially in my corner of Manhattan, the Upper West Side. So happy you could join me!
