NYC Grand Army Plaza Manhattan

So what is so special about the corner of 5th avenue and e 59th street?

Answer: The corner is the location of the famous “Plaza Hotel”, The Apple Store and several prominent 5th  avenue shops – It’s a busy area.

The Plaza Hotel faces the Grand Army Plaza – southern entrance to Central Park. I encourage you to go inside and experience the feel of this grand hotel. Definitely see the Oak Room and the Palm Court.Also, the hotel has been the site for famous performers and guests.

The fountain outside the Plaza Hotel, at 59th Street and Fifth Avenue, will be home to 12 monumental bronze animal heads sculptured by the Chinese artist Ai Weiwei starting May 2 and continuing through July 15.The sculpture, “Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads,”  is quite interesting..

Facing the hotel is the Grand Army Plaza the south-eastern entrance to Central Park.The area is a lively place  as there are horse-carriages for hire, colorful flowers and definitely, plenty of people. Go in any direction from here to make your own discoveries.
