Statues on Parade

I'll get back to my jaunt to Governor's Island tomorrow...but in celebration of tonight's Baseball All-Star game, I'm showing some of the "Statues on Parade" that have popped up around the city. There are 42 replicas of the statue of liberty all around New York and the statues have the names of major league teams on them. (I guess it's the same idea as the cows on parade from several years ago.) I've only seen three of them, so I've made a collage. This is the last all-star game that will take place in the old Yankee stadium before they move to a new stadium next season. Play Ball!

Very colourful. This is a good idea to promote the game and it brightens up the streets.

Head over to Cheltenham, it'll be worth your while :)

I think the statue idea is so cool and colorful. Nothing more American than baseball in Yankee stadium and the Statue of Liberty. Great photos Lori!

Interesting concept with the Statue of Liberty, of course this is NYC, & the final season of Yankee Stadium (which itself holds a lot of memories).

Maybe a photo of Yankee Stadium will be great blog photo at the end of the season.
