The Statues of Central Park – the Answers

Here are the questions to the Jeopardy! episode from last month:

  1. Who is Christopher Columbus? (This statue is in the lower section of Central Park; there is another at Columbus Circle just outside the park.)
  2. Who is Hans Christian Andersen? (The statue is sitting on a granite bench in the Great Lawn section of the park.)
  3. Who is Samuel F.B. Morse? (The statue is inside the park at Inventor’s Gate, Fifth Avenue and 72nd Street.)
  4. Who is Duke Ellington? (The statue is in the north end of the park, near 100th Street, and is 25 feet tall.)
  5. Who is Sherman (The statue and plaza are at 60th Street)

So there’s a lot more to Central Park than paths and joggers, so enjoy!  [If you’re really feeling energetic, make it a walking tour of these five statues – it’ll be about five miles.]

Feel free to leave a comment, and please come back – I write and post often!  And if you like what I have to say and how I say it, you’ll probably enjoy my novels as well.  They’re listed below, and you can read more about them on my improved website, designed and built by my son Don,  On my site, you’ll also find excerpts of my books that you can read – please check it out!
