Anna Hyatt Huntington, Bronze Monument on Audubon Terrace in Washington Heights

Audubon Terrace, also known as the Audubon Terrace Historic District, is a landmark complex of eight early-20th century Beaux Arts/American Renaissance buildings located on the west side of Broadway, bounded by West 155th and West 156th Streets, in the Washington Heights neighborhood of upper Manhattan, New York City. Home to several cultural institutions, the architecturally complementary buildings are arranged in two parallel rows facing each other across a common plaza.

Commissioned in the early 1900s by Archer Milton Huntington (founder of the equally beautiful Hispanic Society, which owns the statues and the terrace on which they are located) and sculpted by his wife Anna Hyatt Huntington, the statues on Audubon Terrace offer a staggeringly wide array of choices for the modern palette.
