Of all monuments

Since we're from Brooklyn, a monument to the person who our bridge is named after was kind of funny.

Stop by and view this monument, on the north end of the boardwalk...it provides details as to who Verrazzano is, does a bridge in New York sound familiar?

We came upon this monument when we were riding our bikes on the Rehoboth Boardwalk one morning. We stopped and read about the Explorer who discovered that area. History buffs will enjoy the monument very much, and it may encourage further research about Verrazzano!
