Defenders Arch

September 27, 2011

Via a reader comes this image of Grand Army Plaza on a 1909 postcard.  As the latest redesign nears completion, it’s really fun to look back and see how much has changed and how much as remained the same.  The building in the lower left is located on the current site of the Prospect Park Residence.  I love the relationship between the four columns at the entrance to Prospect Park and the arch, and as the kind of person who feels like a little kid every time he rides the cable cars in San Francisco, I’d love to see streetcars return to Brooklyn.
