Prospect Park Veterans Day Tour

More than 2,800 Brooklynites were killed in World War I, and Prospect Park quickly became one of the borough’s key points of remembrance and commemoration. On this walking tour, we will explore some of the memorial sites in the park and the people they remember, including the commemorative trees along Prospect Park West, Bartel-Pritchard Square, and the striking 1921 memorial by Henry Augustus Lukeman. We will also discuss the ways in which the park was mobilized and transformed as a result of the war. This tour is led by Turnstile Tours, which leads public tours of the park in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance.
