Captain America Statue

Most people walk into the industrial-chic mall that is Brooklyn’s Liberty View to buy pillowcases at the Bed, Bath & Beyond “mega-complex” inside. But those not in search of a duvet cover come for a very different reason: to pay respects to a one-ton, 13-foot bronze statue of Captain America in the lobby, lifting his shield nobly atop a plinth.

Reviews for the statue on Google are half worshipful, half indignant. Many speak passionately about the journeys undertaken from abroad and aborough to admire this costumed depiction of the comic book character Steve Rogers, whose star turn in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films inspired a passionate fandom. The other half protest that the statue shouldn’t be in the mall at all, but should hold a place of honor in a Brooklyn park (in honor of the character’s roots as “just a kid from Brooklyn”), or at least somewhere less blatantly capitalist.
