A throw back to the traditional style of public art, the bronze statue, is Penelope Jenck’s statue of Eleanor Roosevelt at the entrance to Riverside Park on the Upper West Side, which was formerly an on ramp for the Henry Hudson Parkway. Dedicated by Hilary Clinton, Eleanor Roosevelt is the first American woman for whom a statue has been commissioned for a city park. She sits atop a large chiseled boulder, pensing about bon bons or world peace.
