“Pelham Bay Park is a municipal park located in the northeast corner of the New York City borough of the Bronx. It is, at 2,772 acres (1,122 ha), the largest public park in New York City. The park is more than three times the size of Manhattan’s Central Park. The park is operated by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation (NYC Parks).

Pelham Bay Park contains many geographical features, both natural and man-made. The park includes several peninsulas, including Rodman’s Neck, Tallapoosa Point, and the former Hunter and Twin Islands. A lagoon runs through the center of Pelham Bay Park, and Eastchester Bay splits the southwestern corner from the rest of the park. There are also several recreational areas within the park. Orchard Beach runs along Pelham Bay on the park’s eastern shore. Two golf courses and various nature trails are located within the park’s central section. Other landmarks include the Bartow-Pell Mansion, a city landmark, as well as the Bronx Victory Column & Memorial Grove.

The park was created in 1888, under the auspices of the Bronx Parks Department, largely inspired by the vision of John Mullaly, and passed to New York City when the part of the Bronx east of the Bronx River was annexed to the city in 1895. Orchard Beach, one of the city’s most popular, was created through the efforts of Robert Moses in the 1930s.

The Siwanoy (transliterated as “southern people”) were the first Native American tribe to inhabit the Long Island Sound’s northern shoreline east to Connecticut. They lived a mostly hunter-gatherer existence. The Siwanoy used the modern-day park site as a ceremonial and burial site, as evidenced by the wampum belts found in the area, which were used for diplomatic purposes among local Native American tribes. Two glacial erratics in the park, deposited during the end of the last ice age, were used ceremonially by the Siwanoy: the “Gray Mare” on Hunter Island, and Mishow near the Theodore Kazimiroff Nature Trail.”_Wikipedia.org

Bronx Victory Memorial

“One of the most impressive monuments in New York City, the Bronx Victory Memorial was designed by architect and landscape architect John J. Sheridan (1888–1954), and sculptors Belle Kinney (1887–1959) and Leopold Scholz (1877–1946). It consists of a landscaped plaza and a raised paved terrace in which stands a massive limestone pedestal with sculptural reliefs. At the center of the pedestal, a Corinthian column is surmounted by a gilded bronze victory figure. Erected in 1932 and dedicated in 1933, the memorial and adjacent grove of trees on the south side of Shore Road commemorate the 947 soldiers from the Bronx who gave their lives in service during World War I.”_nycgovparks.org

American Boy

“This massive salvaged limestone sculpture by the French-born artist Louis St. Lannes of a partially clad male youth once adorned a temple-like niche in Rice Stadium in Pelham Bay Park.

In 1919 Julia Rice, offered the City of New York $1,000,000 to erect a recreational facility in memory of her late husband–lawyer, financier and inventor Isaac Rice (1850-1915). The location chosen for this facility was the southern end of Pelham Bay Park in the Bronx, not far from the battery factory which Rice owned and operated.

The elaborate classically styled stadium and indoor recreational building, erected in the early 1920s, included decorative Olympics-inspired friezes by Charles Cary Rumsey (1879-1922), as well as the statue of American Boy, which was installed on a pedestal at the top of the grandstand, and covered by a pedimented canopy.”_nycgovparks.org

THAT CHILDREN SHOULD BE UNFETTERED BY THE DOMINATION AND THE CONVENTIONS OF THE PAST. WE OWE TO YOUTH AN UNTRAMMELED HAPPINESS GUIDED BUT NOT STULTIFIED BY STERN OBEDIENCE TO RIGID RULES SET DOWN BY THEIR ELDERS. THE PROPER SPIRIT OF PLAY MUST BE ENCOURAGED: IT IS THE NATURAL INSTINCT OF THE YOUNG. HEALTHY CLEAN MIND IN A STRONG CLEAN BODY IS THE IDEAL FOR WHICH WE SHOULD STRIVE.”
