  • In a quiet corner of the Great Park of Central Park, in 1955 then on the occasion of the 150 years since the birth of the Danish writer, this bronze statue was placed in its memory. With her duckling beside her adoring look, the statue gives a pleasant and sweet feeling of serenity. We add the evocative fairytale setting of where it was placed (beautiful in autumn with red leaves for the folliage) and you can see why it is one of our favorite spots in the New York Park.

  • Don't think 'loved it's applies here. Humbling experience that certainly for those of an age that loved his books will identify with. Memories of my parents reading to me only make the thought of these children missing out upsetting. A fitting memorial with plenty of seating to reflect quietly. Strangely, the guy with the bubble machine attracting families passing by seemed to fit the location perfectly.
  • It's a beauty!!! The public has Story Time for children.
