The marker in Henry Hudson Riverfront Park, commemorating Lafayette's Farewell Tour of the country in 1824-1825, was ceremonially unveiled yesterday morning. Carrying out the unveiling were Patrice Powley Birner, past New York State Regent of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Mayor Kamal Johnson, and Julien Icher of Follow the Frenchmen and The Lafayette Trail.
