1. There is a Memorial Dedicated to Victims of Crime

Several monuments inside City Hall Park honor prominent individuals throughout American history, including Jane Addams and Joseph Pulitzer, whose newspaper was located on the now-lost Newspaper Row alongside City Hall Park. One memorial, however, is specifically dedicated to the citizens of New York who have been victims of violent crimes. Dedicated in April 24, 1991, the grey granite plaque was fabricated by Michael Lewis, and donated by the National Victim Center. Alongside the plaque, a tree stands as a lasting tribute.  Unfortunately, the area where the plaque is located is off-limits due to security barriers.
