Will Brooklyn ever lose sight of where Ruth Bader Ginsburg came from? Fuggedaboudit.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Saturday that New York State would erect a statue of RBG to honor the legacy of the late trailblazing Supreme Court justice in the borough of her birth.
“She was a monumental figure of equality, and we can all agree that she deserves a monument in her honor,” Cuomo said.
A commission will select a design and location for a Ginsburg statue.
RBG was born in the Gravesend neighborhood and graduated from James Madison High School. She famously became only the second woman in history to become a Supreme Court justice.
“The family of New York ... remembers proudly that (Ginsburg) started her incredible journey right here in Brooklyn,” Cuomo said. “Her legacy will live on in the progress she created for our society, and this statue will serve as a physical reminder of her.”
