The Broadway Malls

From 60th Street to 168th Street, lies a history filled median of greenery and flowers called The Broadway Malls. The Malls were established in 1904 and have been a New York City park since 1904.

Eighteen whimsical and captivating sculptures have been placed for public view on the Broadway Malls from Columbus Circle to 168th Street.

The Malls are a 5.5 mile-long park that provides a welcome green space from the Upper West Side through Harlem to Washington Heights.

Art on the Malls is the Broadway Mall Association’s program to enliven the Broadway Malls with contemporary art. Peter Woytuk’s sculptures have become a part of New York’s brilliant city landscape.

Having lived on Broadway for the past 20 years, I've often admired the Malls and love how wide Broadway is with thousands of merchants and residents facing Broadway these 10.5 acres of parkland serve as our front yard.

The Broadway Mall Association works to beautify and maintain the malls. Broadway Mall Association serves millions of New Yorkers who live and work in the Upper West Side, Morningside Heights, West Harlem and Washington Heights.

Hi Gene, Thank you! It's the median in the miiddle of the street. Directly below is the subway.

Hi Jennefer, Thank you. They are all different. Elephants at Columbus Circle, a watering can at 96th Street I have 4 Ostrches in front of my building.

Hi Ruthmarie, Thanks, I love sitting on the benches along the median.

DeeDee, Thank you. They appeared one day in October and they will only be there through April. Hopefully April will be nice.
