The National Maine Monument Fund commissioned the statue which was dedicated in 1913. The Fund raised the money through public subscription. It commemorates the ship the USS Maine which was sunk in Havana in 1898. The statue is situated at the main entrance to Central Park in New York – Merchants Gate.
These are my impressions of the statue which were taken in 2010.
