    I grew up in South Trenton . I remember when this statue was placed in the park . It has always represented a part of my Italian Heritage . I agree with your idea of moving this out of the park because no one is there anymore to care about it ..thank you for this article

    Good riddance! Christopher Columbus came and discovered another man’s land, claimed it for himself and then proceeded with mass genocide of an entire people. Now that people, is the history that minorities and indigenous people have to stare down every time we’re presented with the sugar coated history of this country.
