Sims to Straus Tour by Dianne L. Durante

On this tour, mostly within Central Park, we visit three joyful dancing maidens, Burnett’s Secret Garden, the Father of Gynecology, Duke Ellington, Frederick Douglass, and the lovely Straus Memorial. This 2 1/2-hour tour is designed as a walking tour (1 1/2 miles), but can be given seated and/or indoors, if the weather is uncooperative or attendees prefer a less strenuous tour.

Here are a few of the sculptures we’ll visit.
