Veterans Day Tour

Join Turnstile Tours and Prospect Park Alliance for a Veterans Day Tour of Prospect Park. 

More than 2,800 Brooklynites were killed in World War I, and Prospect Park is one of the borough’s main locations for remembrance and commemoration. On this Veterans Day walking tour, explore some of the memorial sites in the park and the people they memorialize, including the memorial 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.
