Overview

In the heart of Midtown East lies the Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, a rectangular patch of green that has served as a popular gathering point in the community for several years. Named in the honor of former Secretary-General of United Nations and posthumous recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize award, Dag Hammarskjöld, this plaza-cum-park lays spread over 1.59 acres (0.64 hectares). Besides being a good place for a stroll, the park is also a popular spot for community events, like the healthy farmer's market held every Wednesday. Call to know more.
