DescriptionThe Brooklyn War Memorial inside of Brooklyn’s Cadman Plaza is dedicated to the more than 300,000 "heroic men and women of the borough of Brooklyn" who served in World War II. Inside are displayed approximately 11,500 names of Brooklyn service members who died during the war.
The memorial, designed by the architectural firm of Eggers and Higgins, includes two massive exterior high relief figures by sculptor Charles Keck (1875–1951), that depict a male warrior on the left and a female with a child to the right – symbols of victory and family.
The idea for a large-scale borough monument arose from Parks Commissioner Robert Moses’s (1888–1981) desire to create unified World War II monuments for each borough in an effort to avoid the situation that arose after World War I when many far flung, locally-inspired, individual pieces were erected throughout the city's parks. In the end, Brooklyn was the only borough to build such a monument. This is a unique opportunity to work with a diverse group of people including park managers, architects, engineers, local elected officials, the community board, and dedicated volunteers.
