A nice open plaza: does the arch commemorate anything in particular I wonder?
Beverly Andrighetti: I believe it was to celebrate the centennial of George Washington's inauguration as President of the United States, Chris, and was designed by New York architect, Stanford White, who modeled it after the Arc de Triomphe.
stunning processing, I visited it in 2002, nice monument
Beverly Andrighetti: Thank you, Chantal. Yes, it is a nice monument and as well as being a great place to people watch is also one of NYC's iconic sites.
An exciting spot in this shot.
Beverly Andrighetti: Yes, Mary, the whole area around the arch was buzzing with energy and excitement. Lots of activity to catch the eye.
I like the way you've dealt with the background, a great feeling of recession.
Beverly Andrighetti: Many thanks, Brian. Wasn't sure if it would work or not.
Just about the first place I saw on my first trip to NY in 1963. We were travelling on a tour bus from Washington, DC, and the driver had never been to NY before - I was up front reading the street map and directing him to Washington square smile
Beverly Andrighetti: I'm sure the bus driver couldn't have had a better navigator, Tom. The Washington Square area must have been really something to experience during the '60's.
This is a magnificent shot Beverly! I think it's one of the best I've ever seen of the Arch!
Beverly Andrighetti: Thank you very much for such a kind comment, Elizabeth. I really appreciate it.
