  • A beautiful statue set in Central Park NYC and a great photo opportunity! The area around the statue could have been better kept (the planting had been let-go somewhat) with quite a few weeds in the surrounding hedgerows and borders. The statue is directly next to the model boating pond, where you can hire toy boats to sail... A lovely family activity. The boat house had absolutely lovely plants and flowers - which served to distinguish between the statue area further.
  • Very nice statue, more so a playground for the children. They have benches all around, so you can easily watch the kids as they enjoy themselves. A big bronze statue to admire, all the hard workmanship put into it. But overall, not a must-see in my opinion when you visit New York, but worth visiting if you're in the area.
