Up Close & Personal with the Arch

July 28 2017

This week, the NYC Park’s Conservation Unit stopped by Washington Square Park for their yearly inspection of the Park’s monuments. Garibaldi, Holley, and the Arch were all washed, waxed, and inspected to make sure they are all structurally sound. We were lucky enough to virtually join NYC Park’s on a rare journey to the top of the Arch! Take a minute-and-a-half to get an up close and personal look at the detailed spandrel and rosettes in this iconic monument:
