  • A very New York atmosphere which prevails in this Plaza, a special "touch" give the heavy-duty horse drawn carts and their elegant riders. In the square there is a monument that stands out for the flawless golden color of the sculptural representations. Exists a plate of granite recessed whose translation would be the following: "great square of the army: so named in Honor and for perpetuate them made of the great army of the Republic and them forces of the Union that caused the Renaissance of the nation conceived in freedom". Enjoy the Big Apple. LIFE... is a trip!

  • This is a nice picture op. It was not hard to find but hard to cross the road to it. We enjoyed seeing it. 
  • The soldiers marched earlier under this beautiful triumphal arch by. Cosy Plaza with fountain and statue of President Lincoln on horseback. And access to it (not very special) Prospect Park. Large market every weekend.

  • Beautiful architecture right in the middle of a busy intersection of brooklyn. Train, Park and public library nearby. In summer time there is a water fountain.
  • Small but beautiful plaza with its European-style arch, reminiscent of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. Be sure to pass by if you're visiting Brooklyn Museum or Public Library. Wish they had more signage explaining the historic significance of the place.
  • Scenic area with fountain, benches and of course, the arch. Great stroll through top Prospect Park. Excellent greenmarket across the street on Saturdays.
  • Nice space to relax, even in the middle of a giant traffic circle. Beautiful monument and fountain.
  • Beautiful fountains and plaza area. Shame there's not a great amount of signage for those interested enough to read about their surroundings.
