Long Description:
In 2003, New York's Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg joined the Consulate General of Sweden in New York to unveil the Nobel Monument by Swedish sculptor Sivert Lindblom on the west side of the park. The site was chosen based on Theodore Roosevelt’s distinction as the first United States President to win a Nobel Prize (for peace). The monument, a monolith with four sides of rough-hewn red Swedish granite and a bronze relief medallion depicting a likeness of Alfred Nobel also features a chronological list with the names of the American recipients of the Nobel Prize inscribed; new names are inscribed yearly and unveiled at an annual ceremony.
