The 3,500-year-old Egyptian Obelisk (also known as Cleopatra's Needle) was installed in Central Park this week in 1881 (January 22). Join us as we stroll around this iconic 220-ton monolith and discover how after being gifted to the United States, its transportation to New York took over a year, and was a significant feat of logistics, diplomacy, and engineering.
