Columbus Park Unveiling of Dr. Sun Yet-Sen Statue

“All Under Heaven Are Equal” 

 

Inscribed and gilded in Chinese on the front of the pedestal is the Confucian motto using Dr. Sun Yat-sen*’s own calligraphy.

Council Member Chin, Manhattan Parks Commissioner Castro and many other luminaries spoke of this important moment of the new Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Plaza.

A cold day but joyous celebration – nice to see Harold Moy and the Lion Dancers!

And Karlin Chan, Chinatown advocate.

And our wonderful former Park Manager Terese Flores and Deputy Chief of Operations Ralph Musolino

A great day

*Chinese philosopher, physician, and politician, who served as the first president of the Republic of China and the first leader of the Kuomintang (Nationalist Party of China)
