Garden decoration statues have been a part of our cityscape for centuries.
In New York City, there are several of these decorative garden benches that hang in the shape of flowers, fruits, and other items.
The most famous of these is the statue of Eleanor Roosevelt, a figure of beauty whose influence lives on today.
The Garden of Eden has been a symbol of New York’s past and its present, and these garden benches are just one of many places that can be found in our city that honor the memory of the great leader.
The New York Public Library has more than a dozen statues of Eleanor and other city icons, some of which have been displayed for over 100 years.
