The Soldiers and Sailors Monument
This massive circular temple-like monument located along Riverside Drive at 89th Street commemorates Union Army soldiers and sailors who served in the Civil War. The marble monument, with its pyramidal roof and 12 Corinthian columns, is based on the Choragic Monument of Lysicrates in Athens. It was commissioned by the State of New York, and dedicated on Memorial Day in 1902.
American Heros Memorial
This Flag Pole and Garden was erected in 1944 to honor WW II veterans of Ukrainian decent . It is located at St Mark’s square in front of ST Mark’s Church.
Both these memorials stand today in honor of our service men and woman of another era. Let us not forget those who came after these wars as they also have served our country so very well.
