While you slept: Saturday, December 15, 2012. The execution and removal of "The Triumph of Civic Virtue" from Queens Borough Hall.




The gallows: Queens Borough Hall.
 


The hearse awaits the body of Civic Virtue.
 


Workers ready the execution site.
 


Civic Virtue stoically awaits his fate.
 

No reprieve.


Behold!  This is Queens.



The undertakers receive the corpse.
 


Guiding the coffin to the hearse.
 



Identifying the victim.
  



Queens officialdom blesses the event.


The funeral procession of the Queens statue - and ideal - of Civic Virtue
procedes to a cemetery in Brooklyn.
