In June, 2001, our Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, Parks Commissioner Henry J. Stern and the City Parks Foundation got together to celebrate the official re-opening of this park. It’d been under restoration for quite some time.

“Madison Square Park is one of the most historically important parks in New York City and now it looks better than ever,” Mayor Giuliani said. “Thanks to a strong public-private partnership this park has been restored to its

19th century magnificence for all New Yorkers to enjoy. Once left in disrepair, the newly renovated Madison Square Park symbolizes New York City’s ongoing renaissance.” Personally, I welcome the re-opening myself since this park has served as a great pit-stop and resting station for many of us New Yorkers. It also happens to be where most of the north bound express buses begin their trips to the Bronx and beyond.

Note: Madison Square Park was the first site to display the Statue of Liberty’s torch-bearing armmadison-park-013

So, should you be in the area, it’s a wonderful place to just sit and relax under the shade of the many trees you’ll find within.

The Public Art Fund is a non-profit arts organization which brings art to New York’s public spaces. You’ll come across quite a bit of their handiwork throughout the metro area.
