Foes wave off statue deal

We all know that the positioning of statues is important. So is the line of sight. Here is a news item that, because of public outcry over the treasured line of sight of a statue, the developer of a condominium has to change their building plan.

By the way, this NY Daily News article has a nicely taken photo.

Foes wave off statue deal

It may "save the wave," but Greenwood Heights advocates have ripped a new deal promising not to block a long-celebrated sightline between a landmark statue and the Statue of Liberty.

The view between Minerva and Lady Liberty would have been blocked by a condo planned in the neighborhood.

But developer Chaim Nussencweig signed an agreement with the Green-Wood Cemetery last week promising to alter designs for the unpopular condo plan so it will not block the wave.

In exchange, cemetery officials agreed to stop publicly criticizing the project or participating in a neighborhood campaign to make sure the building is scaled back to fit within new zoning regulations.

It's not very often that art wins, so this is refreshing. Good to read about it. Thank you, Merlion.

It's very important that the line of sculpture. When you view a sculpture, if the line of the sculpture's surface, it is not good-looking.
