  • It is in Central Park, at the height of the MET. It is striking that is exposed on the outside, being so old. It is worth going to see it, with patience, than in midsummer, with leafy trees, is not at a glance.

  • Stumbled across this little piece of Egypt in Central Park during my morning stroll, very interesting about the crabs.  more »
  • Next to the metropolitan museum. The obelisks is old, about 3500 years old. It is 70 feet tall, 220 tons and the city’s oldest artifact  more »

  • Get a wide angle camera for a great selfie. Visit in Springtime with cherry blossom in the background, coming up soon 2018~!. Either you take selfie here or at the Victoria Embankment, London (hint summer time), Obélisque de Louxor in the middle of Place de la Concorde in Paris (early September) which is HUGE! or go to Egypt. My next trip to visit Sister Pharaoh Cleopatra in person, never mind her needles.
  • First erected at Helipolis Egypt in 1600 B.C. it has now found it's way to NYC central park. It's a little out of the way but definitely worth checking out.
  • Erosion because of its location makes it hard to be restored. There aren't many honorable cultivated elderly who can repair the metutu.
  • Little known, a worthy obelisk in Central Park
  • Hidden gem and such a treasure to have in NYC Central Park. It is a shame most people don't know it's here. I love visiting this piece of Egyptian history when I'm here from Pittsburgh.
