BROOKLYN - A controversial statue has found a new home in Brooklyn.
The Statue of Civic Virtue stands 14-feet tall and shows a man standing victorious over two women, who are supposed to represent vice and corruption. The statue, now housed at Green-Wood Cemetery, was commissioned in the late 19th century and was unveiled in 1920.
The statue has caused controversy since it went up at City Hall in Manhattan and then at Queens Borough Hall. It is currently being restored before being put on display at the cemetery.
Once the statue is restored in the spring, it will feature a plaque highlighting its history.
