Almost 5 years since the ignominious transport to Brooklyn of the famed sculptor Frederick MacMonnies' "The Triumph of Civic Virtue" carved by the acclaimed Italian-American marble cutters, the Piccirilli Brothers, the beloved missing statue's remaining fountain base and surroundings are ready for public usage.
(See exclusive coverage of the removal of the statue on December 15, 2012 HERE. Also, the statue's emplacement in Brooklyn's Green-Wood cemetery immediately thereafter on December 19, 2012 HERE. And again, the Green-Wood cemetery emplacement site on the one-year anniversary of Civic Virtue's removal, December 15, 2013 HERE.)
