The City of Troy, New York, "Where Henry Hudson Turned Around."

Monday, April 25, 2005


Finally, the City's long nightmare is over. According to The Record, the City of Troy will soon be getting an Uncle Sam Monument. The only decision left: where to place the monument and how to pay for it.

The poorly written article does not indicate whether it will be a monument to the actual Sam Wilson or to the symbol that has long represented the United States.

The Troy Polloi would like to see the monument placed in Riverfront Park, perhaps at the end of Fulton Street. Here's our idea of what the monument should look like! Well, it's more of a statue than monument, but we really need one and fast.

It is nice to see the Council handling those tough issues. Perhaps we can also erect a monument to anyone who can fix the potholes that plague the city.

In unrelated news, Washington D.C. to get Lincoln Memorial.
