1811 - 1872

As founder of New York Tribune - whose headquarters were located opposite City Hall Park on Park Row - Horace Greeley set new standards for integrity in American journalism. Greeley's editorials addressed the social and political issues of his era, including the abolition of slavery and the settlement of the West. Greeley was nominated for the presidency in 1872 but lost the election and died several weeks later. His body lay in state atop the rotunda staircase in City Hall. This statue, by John Quincy Adams Ward, was commissioned by his co-workers at the New York Tribune.
