1) This monument is located in front of the NYS Supreme Court building Downtown Brooklyn on Court Street

2) Who? Attorney General, U.S. Senator, and Presidential candidate Robert Francis Kennedy (1925-1968).  why? Kennedy mounted a successful campaign for the United States Senate in 1964. After speaking out against the escalating war in Vietnam, Robert Kennedy ran for president in 1968. He was assassinated June 6, 1968 while campaigning in Los Angeles. The sculpture was relocated and placed in a picturesque floral surrounding as a result of renovations to Columbus Park, completed in 1994.

3) I like the fact that they honored him
