The Prez of Brooklyn Borough, Eric Adams, said, "RBG was clearly a symbol of what's great about this country and how, when we are inclusive, we can stop the level of exclusiveness that is pervasive throughout this country."
RBG had a say in the statute -- it was designed by Gillie and Marc Schattner while Ruth was still alive, and she gave it her stamp of approval.
As for honoring RBG during Women's History Month ... who better? As a civil rights lawyer, she was the locomotive that propelled women's rights into the law books of America, and as a Supreme Court Justice, she fought hard to maintain and expand women's rights as well as the civil rights of others.
Anyone who wants to see the statute, here are the rules. Up to 6 people at a time can reserve 20-minute viewings in City Point, providing they adhere to Covid-19 guidelines, which include mask-wearing and social distancing.
