Photo of the Day: Dante Statue, Dante Park, NYC

Right across from Lincoln Center in Manhattan stands a triangle at Broadway, Columbus Avenue, and West 63rd Street. Dante Park is named for the medieval poet who created the masterful Divine Comedy.

This statue, named in the poet’s honor and created by sculptor Ettore Ximenes, was dedicated in 1921, the 600th anniversary of Dante's death. I took this photograph  several days ago while visiting Lincoln Center.
