Best Cold War remnant New York 2004 - 'THE BERLIN WALL AND THE COLD WAR'

The Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum, glutted with patriotic battle simulators and helicopter remnants, prominently displays the outdoor tableau 'THE BERLIN WALL AND THE COLD WAR.' A 1960s-era U.S. tank, formerly the "front line of defense against the Soviet Bloc incursion," squares off with a captured battle tank. Between the two lies a large chunk of the Berlin Wall "rescued" by a New York artist and accompanied by an "Iron Curtain plaque," all serving as a reminder of Reagan-lovers' favorite American triumph.
