The Village Council last night gave preliminary approval for several volunteers, led by Nancy Brennan-Hill of Doremus Avenue, to begin assembling an inventory of additional sculptures suitable for display at various locations throughout Ridgewood’s Central Business District 9CBD).
Any new sculptures would join several currently in place within the CBD itself, and a few on CBD outskirts. Most notable are the letter carrier (near post office), dog and boy with ice cream cone (in front of Van Neste Memorial Park), and bear (at Ken Smith Motors).
Several years ago, a similar endeavor took place. The most notable sculpture at that time was a large black Moses, crafted by artist Judith Peck of Mahwah, NJ, which was located displayed on the property of Christ Episcopal Church at Cottage Street and Franklin Avenue.
