"Cleopatra's Needle" Central Park - Cleopatra's Needle Tip by sue_stone
Central Park - Cleopatra's Needle, New York City: 7 reviews and 17 photos
Cleopatra's Needle is an Egyptian monument (obelisk) located in Central Park.
It was presented to America by Egypt, and was set up in Central Park in 1881.
It is made from red granite and was originally erected at Heliopolis (c.1475 B.C.)
I especially wanted to see it as I am interested in Egyptian monuments, and it seemed so out of place in Central Park!!
