Letter: Ugly Skyway, like statues, should also be removed

Ugly Skyway, like statues, should also be removed

The News article about the two new sculptures at Canalside mentioned they would be visible from the Skyway. That’s appropriate because, like the Skyway, they are elevated, ugly and should be removed.

To me, these “Silent Poets” represent the New York State Department of Transportation, which promised Rep. Brian Higgins a report on Skyway alternatives many months ago. The DOT has been totally silent on the issue, just like the two statues who symbolically cover their mouths with their hands.

The sculptures are scheduled for removal in October 2016. Too bad we can’t say the same about the Skyway.
