Weekday Urban Sketchers at Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn
Olmsted and Vaux designed the complex now known as Grand Army Plaza as the official entrance to Prospect Park to connect the park with the surrounding ornamental streets such as Eastern Parkway, the nation's first parkway. The complex includes the Soldiers and Sailors Arch, Balley Fountain and the JFK Memorial. The plaza is surrounded by other landmark buildings including the main branch of the Brooklyn Public Library with its iconic Egyptian Art Deco entrance. All told we should have plenty to keep us busy for the day's outing.
