Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza
- On 8/6/13, I was here to speak at the joint Midtown South/17th NYPD Precinct National Night Out Against Crime.
- Dag Hammarskjold Plaza is the largest public garden on the east side of Midtown. Check out the Katharine Hepburn Garden (who formerly lived nearby). The garden bench was a gift from her estate.
- Andrew Rogers' Individuals is composed of 15 bronze sculptures. Located near the United Nations they are a reminder that a community is made of unique individuals. On display until September 13, 2013.
- This plaza is actually a 1.5 acre park that occupies the entire south side block between First and Second Avenues on East 47th St. Check out the Greenmarket here every Wednesday, weather permitting.
- This block-long public space leading to the United Nations traditionally served as a staging area for demonstrations.
- What the fuck is up with all those creepy statues.
- Walk along this brick-lined area complete with funky gold and silver human-shaped sculptures.
- Get a view of The Dark Tower from here.
- Jonathan Princes G2V incorporates sleek form with broken edges, creating a dynamic tension with the highly refined form of this stainless steel sculpture. See G2V through April 2013.
- This stone and dust temporary sculpture is a replica of the first majestic Olmec head to be uncovered in San Lorenzo Tenochtitlan in 1964.See it through May 5, 2013.

- Come early and watch the birds and homeless bathe in the fountain!
- Nice open area in mid-east to walk the dog and meet other dog owners!
