The author of "Rip Van Winkle" and "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" is memorialized here in this bust standing outside Washington Irving High School on Manhattan's Irving Place. The sculptor was Friedrich Beer. As a satirist, the writer created the character of Diedrich Knickerbocker, now a name synonymous with "New Yorker."
