Central Park World War I Memorial
As I was walking along the east side of Central Park recently, I ran into a World War I memorial. It’s just off 66th Street or so and is dedicated to New York’s Seventh Regiment of the One Hundred and Seventh US Infantry.
It comes from an era where the symbolism is a bit less…symbolic. I have to admit that I probably wouldn’t have noticed a stylized sculpture quite as readily as I did guys brandishing bayonets, but that’s just me.
And I’m happy to know that NYC remembered, and remembers, its veterans.
