Mimi Torchin Photography - Martha's Vineyard and Manhattan

In Memoriam © Mimi Torchin Photography


This statue is the centerpiece of Straus Park, a tiny triangle on upper Broadway  dedicated to the memory of Isador and Ida Straus, who went down with the Titanic. The park is a popular resting spot for residents in this multicultural neighborhood (mine!). In this shot, someone had placed a bouquet of daisies on the statue's hip and a tulip in her hands, perhaps to honor the Strauses.
