Minerva’s Owl in Herald Square

Herald Square Owl

Herald Square in NYC has been transformed into a tiny peaceful green space  in the heart of the surrounding busy shopping area of 34th Street. Herald Square is dedicated to the New York Herald newspaper, founded by James Gordon Bennett in 1835. An owl was on the original masthead of the newspaper. The Herald building (now demolished) had the statue, now located in Herald Square, of Minerva, her owls, and the bell-ringers on its roof.
