  The Berlin Wall segment
by Nathalie_B

Fondest memory: It is a real segment of Berlin wall. You can find it in the plaza of 520 Madison Avenue, which is kind of hiding from view. Just walk a little bit inside on the 53rd. Street toward the 5th. Avenue and you'll find it. There is also a nice cafe located right infront of the wall, so you can enjoy your coffee and the view on the Berlin wall segment which was bought in 1990 by the developer named Jerry Speyer, and this is his property!
