The Isaiah Wall is located in a municipal public park across First Avenue from the United Nations Headquarters. In 1979, the park was named for Ralph Bunche, the first African-American to win the Nobel Peace Prize. In 1975 the wall was rededicated and the attribution "Isaiah" was added under the final word.
