It was a hot one today as we made the rounds on Eastern Parkway and Grand Army Plaza. The warm weather drew people out of doors. Seeing people enjoying themselves, one can’t but think we’re doing what Olmsted, Vaux, and the others who built the space would have wanted.

We had a great time on today’s tour of Grand Army Plaza. It is a special place in Civil War memory. In researching the walking tour I came up with leads for future posts, articles, and maybe walking tours. There is a lot hiding out there in plain sight waiting for someone to tell the story. I want to thank the Brooklyn Museum of Art for putting the event together.
