This is the story behind the beautiful view of the Empire State Building perfectly framed within the Civil War memorial Arch in Brooklyn's Grand Army Plaza.

The Mirador, the tip of the Tower and the keystone of the Arch form a precise three-point-alignment which bisects the Arch at a 90-degree angle.

Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux created the essential framework that led to this amazing view.

“What artist so noble..directs the shadows of a picture so great that Nature shall be employed upon it it for generations, before the work he has arranged for her shall realize his intentions.” – Olmsted, 1852

In addition, this book contains a section on the Concert Grove alignment, the Lincoln statue returning to Grand Army Plaza, and "Book Two of the Incomplete Collection" - 24 original drawings and paintings unrelated to the Mirador.
