The 1.5 acre municipal park known as Dag Hammarskjold Plaza occupies the entire southside of the block between First and Second Avenues on East 47th Street in the Manhattan neighborhood of Turtle Bay. Looking east, the promenade leading to the UN, graced by the metal lattice-work of the entrance dome and six fountains, distinguishes the park with a landscape design befitting its namesake, Dag Agne Carl Hammarskjold. These architectural features, as well as the park’s garden, were designed by NYC park architect George Vellonakis as part of as a community visioning process that began in the 1980s and culminated with the park’s reconstruction in the late 1990s.
