Photo by Nate ArnzenThis is the way to enter Prospect Park: start at Grand Army Plaza and enter on the left, past the statue of James S.T. Stranahan. He was never a military man, so saluting wouldn’t be appropriate, but you should tip your top hat* in his memory. Follow the curving path around the corner of the berm. On your right, rather suddenly, is the Endale Arch**, with it’s emphatic gothic point. It is like a tunnel into another world, just a block away from the traffic of Union Street, Flatbush Avenue, and Eastern Parkway. The long prospect of the meadow stretches out before you on the other side. Enter!

*A top hat is preferred for the grandest entries.

**It was indeed originally called Enterdale. You’re entering the dale.
