The just-as excellent Web site forgotten-ny.com has several sections running down the statues of Manhattan.

Dianne Durante, author of the somewhat esoteric “Outdoor Monuments of Manhattan,” maintains an excellent Web site of her essays and other musings on what she calls representational art.

There are 97 busts in the Hall of Fame of Great Americans at Bronx Community College. Because there is already an excellent online tour of the hall, those memorials get only a passing mention here.

The Smithsonian American Art Museum supports an amazing online inventory of sculptures across the country.

George Washington

George Washington is easily among the most well-known figures in American history, considered the father of the country by the sort of person who uses a phrase like that. He led the Continental Army to victory in the American Revolution, and was the first president.

He is the most “monumentalized” person in New York City, that is to say no one is the subject of more memorials than he is. There are seven statues of Washington in New York: a statue of him and the Marquis de Lafayette in Manhattan’s Morningside Park, two statues on the arch in Washington Square, an equestrian statue in Union Square, one in Flushing Meadows/Corona Park in Queens, one in Washington Plaza in Brooklyn and the enormous figure outside Federal Hall.
