Alamo (“Astor Place Cube”)

Astor Place

The Venue

Tony Rosenthal “Alamo”, 1967, was first installed at Astor Place as part of Doris C. Freedman’s “Sculpture in Environment” installation. Sponsored by the New York City Administration of Recreation and Cultural Affairs, it is most often referred to as the “Astor Place Cube” due the Monumental 15′ Rotating Black Steel Cube, poised on its tip. “Alamo” was the first permanent contemporary outdoor Sculpture installed in the City of New York.
