Take it to the Streets

While many of us pass it daily, most may not realize that a piece of Germany’s history stands proud amongst the skyscrapers and hubbub of the City.

There are at least five portions of the Berlin Wall located within the New York City. While pieces are located at the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum, Gateway Plaza, North Cove Marina, and the World Financial Center, our favorite resides in a somewhat unlikely place. Situated in an alcove on 53rd Street between 5th and Madison Avenues, this segment of the wall was originally located at Waldemarstreet in Berlin. So while you’re walking to work, out shopping, or just looking for something to do – take a look at this magnificent piece of history just outside your door. Peace out.
