Many of the blocks along 5th Avenue that run the stretch of Central Park can blur together. Fancy buildings to the east, trees and a never-ending stone wall to the west. What does change, however, are the occasional landmarks such as memorial statues. On this particular section the 107th Infantry Memorial is one of the few defining elements. Built in 1927, the statue is dedicated to the memory of 1078th Infantry Regiment, which was mostly comprised of men from the area.
By this part of the park, the highrise buildings in midtown begin to be obscured by the trees. The park itself is an ever-changing landscape which makes it the most interesting thing on the block – let's face it, the mostly generic line of buildings along 5th avenue rarely overpower the beauty of the park.
