A replacement Lady Liberty, West-Village style

voxpopcropThis might be the biggest Manhattan-to-Brooklyn nod since Miranda and Steve crossed the river on Sex and the City: The Daily News reports today that a West Village restaurant One if by Land, Two if by Sea has offered its own model Statue of Liberty as a replacement for the eight-foot lady liberty replica stolen from the Ditmas Park café Vox Pop on June 21. The dining room manager at the West Village restaurant told the Daily News that he wanted to do something for Vox Pop after he read in the paper about the fate of the cafe’s stolen statue (the terrorist-style, two-sawed beheading posted on Youtube on July 4.) So, the manager of the Barrow St. restaurant told the Daily News that she would be happy to give the statue, from their front balcony, to the Brooklyn café as a “show of solidarity.” Vox Pop’s manager told the paper that she has received several offers of replacement statues, and that she hasn’t yet made a decision.
