Photo Details

  • Title: Duke Ellington Statue
  • State/Province/Region (required): New York
  • Country (required): United States
  • Nearest Town: New York City
  • Description: Duke Ellington's statue at the northeast corner of Central Park. The marathoners all get a jolt of enthusiasm as they reach the last 4 miles to the finish line behind Tavern on the Green in the Central Park itself. Once you come to this piano whose legs are full scale models of the sculptor's wife, without clothes, a real inspiration, you know you have it in you to cross the finish line.
  • Brief Directions: WIthin NYC you can get to this corner on the M4 crosstown bus from Broadway easily.
  • Notes: The Duke is just as much a Classical composer as Jazz. There's an opera he wrote which has never been performed; his ballet music like The River and Revelations has been danced for decades by the great Alvin Ailey Dance Company now headed by its prima ballerina, retired, Judith Jameson. Duke lived in the neighborhood while composing most of his work.
  • Best Season: Winter
  • Gear: Olympus Pen Mini EM1 and 9-18 mm lens
