On a recent trip to Manhattan, I took these photos of the Jose Marti statue located at the Artists’ Gate which is the entrance to the Park at 59th Street and Avenue of the Americas (6th Avenue).
The inscription reads:
Apostle of Cuban Independence, Leader of the People’s of America and defender of human dignity.
His literary genius and with his political foresight he was born in Havana on January 28 1853 for fifteen years of his life he lived in the city of New York.
He died in action at Dos Rios in Oriente Province on May 19 1895.
