STATUE of CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS

COLUMBUS CIRCLE

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on Thursday plans to keep the CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS Statue at Columbus Circle, following a 90-day review of the city’s monuments and markets by a mayoral advisory commission. Although the statue will stay put at its Upper West Side location, the city plans to add new historical markers to explain the history of Columbus and also commission a new monument to honor Indigenous peoples. The statue of Theodore Roosevelt in front of the American Museum of Natural History and the plaque memorializing Henri Philippe Pétain in Lower Manhattan will also not be removed or relocated, but more information and context will be added to them.

COLUMBUS Still Looks Over MANHATTAN

Angelo Vivolo, president of the Columbus Heritage Coalition, commended the city for preserving the Columbus Circle statue and for creating one honoring Indigenous Peoples. But Vivolo said adding a plaque “that depicts our hero in a negative light is unwelcome and offensive.”

He added, “As Italian-Americans, we will avail ourselves of any and all legal, political, and legislative initiatives to challenge any attempts made to alter the Christopher Columbus statue, which has universally served as a symbol of ethnic pride to all generations of Italian-Americans.”

 

“BRAVO to THIS” !!!
