Sherman Square Upper West Side Coop Apartments

72nd Street Old Subway Station

Broadway and Amsterdam between West 71st Street and West 70th Street.

The small parcel of land, acquired by the city in 1849, was named for civil war General William Tecumseh Sherman (1820–1891) who resided nearby.  The saying “War is hell” is attributed to Sherman. His younger brother, Senator John Sherman (1823–1900) was the author of the Sherman Anti-Trust Act of 1890.

The parcel was reduced in size when 70th Street was opened from Eighth Avenue to Tenth Avenue, cutting through the block and carving out the traffic triangle.
