4. Choragic Monument/Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Memorial Monument and St. Paul’s Chapel

The Choragic Monument of Lysicrates, located in Athens, was erected by the Choregos Lysicrates to commemorate the award of first prize in 335/334 BC, to one of the performances he had sponsored.

Manhattan’s Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Memorial Monument, designed by Charles and Arthur Stough, and the towers of Emery Roth’s San Remo apartment building were modeled on the Choragic Monument of Lysicrates. There is also a replica of the Athenian monument under the spire of St. Paul’s Chapel.

]Saint Paul’s Chapel has preserved George Washington’s Pew.

The 1930 San Remo was the first twin towered building in New York City
