Amelia Earhart Monument

A small monument commemorates Amelia Earhart's nonstop transatlantic solo flight in 1932. Earhart lived in the Harrison/Rye area after marrying George Putnam in 1931. The monument sits in a park near the Harrison train station at the corner of Sunnyside Place and Sunnyside Avenue. Parking is available at the train station or along the street.

The monument features a full-size airplane propeller in bronze, bolted to a rock. Dedicated on June 27, 1932, only a month after Earhart completed her flight. Five years later she tried to fly around the world and vanished over the Pacific Ocean.
