On Thursday, May 25th 2017, Madison Square Park Conservancy and United War Veterans Council commemorated the restoration of the illuminated star atop the Eternal Light Flagstaff in Madison Square Park with a flag-raising ceremony, and also announced plans for a renovation of the surrounding Park landscape.
A few days previously, I managed to get some photos of the Eternal Light Star illuminated in all its glory with its flag proudly blowing in the gentle breeze. The photo was then published by The New York Times to let New Yorkers and visitors know that the light will be ready for its grand lighting on Memorial Day.
