Chaim Gross (1904-1991)
From 1963 until his death, the renowned American sculptor Chaim Gross lived and worked here. Born in the Carpathian mountains of Eastern Europe, Gross came to New York City in 1921 and emerged as a pioneer of the direct carving method in sculpture. He is best known for his joyous wood and stone pieces that celebrate the human form. His art can be found in gardens and plazas throughout Manhattan.
