"Crazy busy all the time"

Grand Army Plaza is a really decorative little chunk of the south part of Central Park. There's a massive statue of Civil War General Sherman being led by a woman that is supposed to symbolize peace. It's a really pretty statue and it is very . . . gold. Thank god it's brushed gold, or this would be blinding when the sun is out.
There's a split design to Grand Army that is modeled after a Parisian landmark (the name I can't recall). And, the south end of the Plaza holds Pulitzer Fountain. I swam in this fountain with a friend after a lot of cocktails. We totally could have been arrested but the photos and laughs we have from this night made it well worth any recourse we could have gotten.
Grand Army is definitely a grand entrance to the park but it is often completely overrun with people. There are people everywhere around here. It's mostly tourists trying to figure out where to go in the park and about an equal amount of solicitors trying to get the tourists to buy something so it can be a bit of a nightmare. But, if you catch it at the right time, it's a very dazzling way to enter the park.
