Porphyrios's Pavilion is a classical structure that provides a cool place for shade, picnics or rest. It has Doric columns and flat roof; the park and river are on one side and the monolithic glass and steel apartment buildings on the other. According to the Battery Park's website, "The Pavilion acts not only as a waypoint, but perhaps as a metaphorical stepping stone on mankind's journey from primitive to modern."
