Grand Army Plaza

5th Ave. bet. 58 & 60th Street
Located southeast of Central Park's main entrance, the Plaza takes its name from the Grand Army of the Potomac, the Union Army in the American Civil War. The bronze stature of Union General William Tecumseh Sherman that stands at the northern half of the plaza is considered among the most distinguished equestrian groupings in Western art. The Pulitzer Fountain with its graceful bronze figure of Pomona, the goddess of abundance, occupies the southern half of the plaza.
