Got Statue?


Apparently indeed, Columbus Circle has at least two. One outshines them all.

It doesn’t fit in. Its been restored now its a mismatch and really, what about those trees?

Ever wonder why Columbus has a statute at that circle and not Eric the Red or even Henry Hudson?

Peter Minuit, born in Germany of French ancestry working for the Dutch company settling New Amsterdam, has a statute at Bowling Green, the birthplace of Manhattan upon a purchase of $100, possibly as a coop share from the Lenape Indian Corporation. (1626)
