The Ongoing Saga of "Civic Virtue"

One of our most popular recent posts was an exploration of Frederick MacMonnies's statue Civic Virtue, which once stood in front of City Hall in Manhattan, but is now falling apart near Queens Borough Hall. The New York Daily News has long followed the statue's trials and tribulations, and published an interesting piece yesterday about the "secret" plan to move the statue to Green-Wood cemetery.

You can read our original post about Civic Virtue here and the Daily News coverage here.

(MacMonnies worked on a number of important works in New York, including the Washington Square Arch. You can read more about many of these monuments, of course, in
Inside the Apple.)
