My companion is named after Jeanne of Arc, and we often walk in the area, and always stop by -- the light and the little island are always beautiful here. A few more factoids to supplement my earlier review: One of the benefactors for the statue was the copper king, William Clark, who Mark Twain called "as rotten a human... More

I have visited this statue frequently over the years. I love to go there! The statue of Joan, the very first of a woman in NYC, was sculpted by a French woman. The horse and figure are just exquisite. And this part of Riverside Park surrounding the statue is so peaceful and well-maintained. I sat for almost an hour watching... More

Peaceful memorial and "island" on the upper west side. Great view of the Hudson. Great part of any walk within the park. Short walk to many places to eat.

This beautiful statue has many interesting points; a few of my favorites: A group of prominent city residents wanted to commemorate the Maid of Orleans' 500th birthday. It was the first statue in the city that honored a real, nonfictional woman (as opposed to the Statue of Liberty or Mother Goose). The sculptor, Anna Vaughn Hyatt Huntington, created not a... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
