"Union Square Brilliance" ~ A view down vibrant Maiden Lane reveals posh retailers and luxury hotels with a bronze sculpture of the Goddess of Victory reigning over Union Square Park. The 90-foot monument was erected in 1903 to commemorate a Naval victory in the Spanish American War. It was one of the few structures in the area to survive the earthquake of 1906, after which Union Square was rebuilt and transformed into a shopping district.
