Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn, NY
It has the grandest park entryway in NYC, in response to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, France. It was created as a memorial to the Union soldiers in the Civil War.
Its elaborately carved design is a base of inspiration for the bronze sculptures that are above the plaza. More statues surround the massive arch on the ground, including a bust of JFK.
Grand Army Plaza is the second largest open air Greenmarket in the city. Each Saturday, members of the community come together, featuring over 600 varieties of farm-fresh fruits, vegetables, baked goods, dairy products and more.
