An Amiable Child Is Honored Here

Manhattan: Morningside Heights/
Riverside Dr., northwest of Grant's Tomb

Five-year-old St. Clair Pollock played on these rocky outcroppings 21 years after they served as backdrop to the Battle of Harlem Heights. A small monument to this 'Amiable Child,' who is said to have fallen from the rocks near this spot, stands in a small fenced-in plot.
