BROOKLYN - Greenpoint residents are outraged after a Civil War statue was vandalized in McGolrick Park.

The Greenpoint Monitor statue was covered in white paint over the weekend. It depicts a man working on the U.S.S Monitor, which was a Civil War battleship built in the neighborhood in the 1860s.

The Parks Department moved quickly to restore the statue, but no arrests have been made and police say the investigation is ongoing.
