The Museum of Natural History has decided to remove the statue of Teddy Roosevelt from its Upper West Side entrance and Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio are backing that decision. The museum was granted permission to remove the bronze sculpture amid backlash following the race-based protests over the death of George Floyd.
In an MSNBC interview on Monday morning, Gov. Cuomo stated that the museum thinks the statue in this environment is in bad taste and supports that decision. Later, Mayor De Blasio echoed the Governor’s sentiment. “I have looked into it and I think Roosevelt himself is another one of these complex figures in American history, he did some extraordinarily progressive things that we feel to this day and he did some things that I think are deeply troubling,” De Blasio said.
