Washington Square Arch - NEW YORK

The Washington Square Arch is a marble Roman triumphal arch in Washington Square Park, in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Lower Manhattan, New York City. Begun in 1892, it commemorates the centennial of George Washington's 1789 inauguration as President of the United States, and forms the southern terminus of Fifth Avenue.

Washington Square Arch, constructed of white Tuckahoe marble, was conceived by architect Stanford White who imitated a Roman Trumphal Arch, iconic monuments Roman Emperors built throughout the empire to celebrate a victory or event. Washington Square Arch stands 77 feet (23 m) high.
