The northernmost entrance to the park is located near this elegant (and, let’s face it, slightly terrifying) intersection of streets. The open space, which is strewn with benches, is anchored by the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Memorial Arch, which was completed in 1892 and features reliefs of presidents Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant.
There are great things to do outside in NYC, but Prospect Park's annual events and attractions might just be some of the best. Find the perfect picnic spot on the Long Meadow, go shopping for fresh produce at local farmers' markets or check out Celebrate Brooklyn! and other summer concerts.
