WHERE IN CENTRAL PARK?
Do you know where in Central Park the third picture in the photo carousel above was taken? To submit your answer, visit: centralpark.com/where-in-central-park. The answers and names of the people who answer correctly will appear in the paper and online in two weeks.
Last week’s answer:Located on the south end of Literary Walk, this bronze likeness is of Scottish national poet Robert Burns (1759–1796). It was created as a companion to the 1872 Sir Walter Scott (1771–1832) across Literary Walk. Both were created by Sir John Steell (1804–1891). Burns is seated on a tree stump, quill pen in hand, eyes turned heavenward in a pose of inspiration. At his feet is a poem dedicated to his lost love, Mary Campbell, and a plough alluding to his agrarian origins. The sculpture was unveiled on Oct. 3, 1880. Congratulations to Joe Ornstein, Henry Bottjer, Bill Ferrarini, Marisa Lohse, Dana Matlin and Gregory Holman for answering question correctly.
