Inside the Soldiers' and Sailors' Memorial Arch

Standing proudly at Brooklyn's Grand Army Plaza, the Soldiers' and Sailors' Memorial Arch acts as both a monumental entrance to Prospect Park and as a threshold between some of the borough's most stately neighborhoods. Announced in November 2019, the Soldiers' and Sailors' Memorial Arch (along with Grand Army Plaza) is in the beginning of a long-awaited $8.9 million restoration led by the Prospect Park Alliance and NYC Parks, and funded by the City of New York. The unveiling of the plans prompted our special access visit with Prospect Park Alliance architect Alden Maddry, with flashlights in hand, walking up the crumbling spiral staircase and ending with the wind whipping at our faces between the bronze sculptures on top. This is not a professionally produced video, but we thought readers would like to see some of our video clips inside which we took for research purposes.
