Brooklyn To Get Statue of Ruth Bader Ginsburg


Late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be honored with a statue in Brooklyn.

“Justice Ginsburg will forever stand as a singular figure in history, unmatched in her pursuit of justice and equality under the law for all Americans,” Governor Cuomo said.

Governor Cuomo has created a 23-person commission that will offer recommendations on the artist, design and location of the statue.

“Her legacy as a jurist, professor, lawyer and scholar will endure for generations and we are honored to erect a permanent statue in memory of Justice Ginsburg,” Cuomo said.
