Less than two blocks away from where President Kennedy was shot, the city of Dallas and many donors erected a monument to the fallen president. The JFK Memorial is a simple monument of seventy-two white concrete pillars, most of which seem to float two feet above the ground, with lights underneath. The pillars are arranged in a square fifty feet to a side and thirty feet high and two openings, one each on the north and south sides. Circular medallions decorate the corners and openings. Philip Johnson designed the structure.
It's a short walk from the Sixth Floor Museum to the JFK Memorial. Here are some easy directions.
