On December 15th 2012, Queens lost the Triumph of Civic Virtue.
We are still waiting upon the findings from our FOIL request, to see if anything can be done.
For now, we would like to thank Able Rigging and any other contractors involved on the ground that day. The work was carried out with care. We also learned from one of the workmen that the statue weighs 27,000 pounds from mechanical determination during the lifting phase. We would also like to thank all of the media outlets which helped bring this issue to the public’s attention.
