Simon Bolivar

As i was walking down 57th street from the Apple store i seen this amazing tall
statue, of Simon Bolivar outside of central park across from Trump towers. The
statue shows Bolivar on his equestrian as if he was about to go to battle. He is
being commemorated because he was a military general and advocate of PanAmericanism.
Bolivar he is ‘’credited with the liberation from Spanish domination
of Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, and Panama’’. In my opinion
commemoration is ok,it doesn’t really stand out as much as the one further into
the park. It does give you a sense of the type of general he was through the
depiction of the battle stance he is in.
