Manhattan: Statues, Monuments and Buildings of Lower Manhattan

Moderate walking, a few stairs, about five or six hours.. We will look at all of the statues in Battery Park, especially the John Ericsson statue. This statue was moved a few years ago. John is looking at Bridge Street instead of the park and the harbor. We  the Shorewalker’s Art Committee will decide whether or not we should suggest that the New York City Art and Antiquities Department turn  the statue to face into the park and the harbor. We will visit the Alexander Hamilton Custom House and the beautiful Native American Indian art inside. We will also visit other builds. Bring lunch and water..  We will walk rain or shine. Call Friday evening until 9:00 PM, if weather is a question. Leader: Tom McBreen—  (516) 812-0156. Check the Shorewalker’s calendar for possible changes.

Meet at 10:00AM inside the Staten Island Ferry Terminal. Take the escalator to the main level, the right side before the turnstiles
