The author of "Rip Van Winkle" and "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" is memorialized here in this bust standing in Brooklyn's Prospect Park. The sculptor was James Wilson Alexander MacDonald. As a satirist, the writer created the character of Diedrich Knickerbocker, now a name synonymous with "New Yorker."
