Nice comparison. It's remarkable how well the stairs and retaining wall have held up over more than 120 years. Wish we still had the old cast iron railing design and frankly wish the Carl Schurz monument had been built elsewhere. Its inward looking design completely negates the grand open overlook that Vaux and Olmsted designed. Everyday I see people peering over the black granite built-in Carl Schurz benches to get a glimpse of the view that was to be the crowning glory of the original design.


love it


I'm one of those people who sometimes climbs onto the benches to get a better view!
