Sherman Square is a diminutive public space at the intersection of West 72nd Street and Broadway on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, in New York City. The small parcel of land, acquired by the city in 1849, was named for William Tecumseh Sherman, who had once resided nearby, in 1891.Diminutive? Sure. Litter prone? Check. Inconsequential? Probably. But this tiny park, probably one of the smallest in the five boroughs, is where I live. And so I love it. Otherwise what kind of neighbor would I be?
