But this isn’t your typical majestic, standing-at-attention in New York Harbor Lady Liberty. Instead, the sculpture depicts the famous mascot of NYC lounging in the grass, like most New Yorkers can be seen doing lately in this incredible spring weather.
The creation is by LA artist Zaq Landsberg and was originally on view in Morningside Park in Harlem until April 25, 2022.
It is aptly titled “Reclining Liberty.” However, now you just have to go a quick trip across the Hudson to find her lounging in Liberty State Park until April 2023.
Visitors are welcome to interact with it, whether climbing, leaning or lounging right alongside her!
According to a press release, it was inspired as a “mashup” of the famous statue and the large reclining Buddhas that can be seen across Asia. It’s also finished with copper paint, to help it look as close to the real Statue of Liberty as possible.
Find it near the Empty Sky Memorial in Jersey City.
