Only a block away from New York’s oldest park, Bowling Green, sits Elizabeth Berger Plaza. This triangular, nondescript green space sits at the entry to Battery Park Tunnel and is an exit for Rector Street Station for the #1 train. Berger Plaza offers potted plants, trees and benches to relax. Historic plaques adorn benches. These commemorate that the location was once called Little Syria – before being displaced by the construction of the tunnel. Undoubtedly a much quieter space then.
