The Riverside Parks Conservancy is promoting an event Thursday night that will call attention to the deteriorating state of the Soldier’s and Sailors Monument in the park at 89th Street
The show is being put on by the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Memorial Association (SSMA), a group “dedicated to preserving the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ monument” and will take place on the promenade below the monument from 7 to 9 p.m.
“Join us for live period music and a lighting of the structure. The event will include a fascinating narrative of the history, current challenges, and vision for the future of the Monument.”
It’s free to attend, but they’re suggesting donations of $25.
