Statue of Hans Christian Anderson in Central Park
Central Park's Hans Christian Andersen statue was erected in 1956 to commemorate the author's 150th birthday. This tribute to the Danish poet, novelist, and children's author, was made possible because of a large donation by the Danish American Women's Association.
The large, bronze statue depicts Andersen seated upon a granite bench, reading from his book The Ugly Duckling. Sculpted by Georg John Lober, this children's statue is meant to be climbed on and is a popular attraction for kids.
