Grand Army Plaza is a beautiful plaza at the entrance to Prospect Park. It’s is full of greenery, the JFK memorial statue, the Bailey Fountain, and of course, the Arch. I highly recommend walking through here.

Our friends live in this area so we are often here to visit. It is always a pleasure, well-served by the subway, some good shopping and food nearby. The entrance to Prospect Park, plus the big arch. Grand apartment buildings.

This impressive arc forms the grand entrance of Prospect Park. Although Flatbush Avenue is incomparable to Champs Elysees, the surrounding is still quite remarkable and offers a sense of pomp and stateliness to Brooklyn.

Fantastic sculptures and impressive arch! Spectacular reminder of the importance of a United States thanks to Lincoln, Grant, and so many brave soldiers.
Not quite sure how the fountain relates but I want to go back in warmer weather to see it running.

finally took the time to walk around and over this monument. have to say it shows some neglect - no fountains functional, and pretty unkempt, but still it stands as a testimony to Abundance, for which I'm grateful.

An impressive arch in the middle of a roundabout greets you as you exit from the subway station. Worth a stop on the way to Brooklyn Botanic Garden.

The Arch of Triumph, right here in Brooklyn! Commemorates the Civil War, of course. Lots of monuments to the Civil War here, so it must have been a big deal. This is an impressive entrance to Prospect Park and up the hill along Flatbush.

This outstanding monument is extremely impressive and has such an amazing story and history about it. Well worth a visit to see it and then visit the magnificent Prospect park!

It is easy to see the grandeur that once existed in this plaza. But, it is also easy to see this plaza has been neglected and the local plant life is winning the battle for dominance. If it is ever restored, it will most certainly be a sight to behold again.
