Grand Army Plaza, Brooklyn, USA

See where this picture was taken. [?]


Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn, New York is an oval plaza that forms the main entrance to Prospect Park. Originally known as Prospect Park Plaza, but renamed in 1926, it is perhaps best known for the Soldiers' and Sailors' Memorial Arch, Brooklyn’s version of the Arc de Triomphe. It is also the site of the Bailey Fountain, and a monument to John F. Kennedy, as well as statues of Civil War generals Gouverneur Kemble Warren and Henry Warner Slocum, along with busts of notable Brooklyn citizens Henry W. Maxwell and Alexander J.C. Skene.
