The Eternal Light Flagstaff has stood in Madison Square Park since 1924 to honor the soldiers returning victorious after Armistice Day, the day the treaty was signed that ended World War I.

This year, on March 15, with a grant from New York Life and others, the Madison Square Park Conservancy began a major renovation project to showcase the area surrounding the Eternal Light Flagstaff, which includes removing old fencing, constructing a plaza, and installing new gardens, fencing, and benches. These changes will make the park look more inviting, as well as open the area to create easier flow of foot traffic.

The formal opening took place this month, just in time for the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day. Read the full story here.
