☞ INTRODUCING: FD Debuts on FDB Circle?
The long awaited debut of the bronze statue of Frederick Douglass at Frederick Douglass Circle may just be at hand. The circular plaza that is on the northwest corner of Central Park and at the base of FDB/8th Avenue has been under construction for what seems to be an eternity. The statue itself has been under a white tarp for most of 2009 so it was quite a site today to see FD himself glance back amongst the green spring foliage. It's yet to be seen if this is just a temporary reveal as in the past, but the plaza looks pretty finished to us at this point. Photo by Ulysses
