‘Self-Made Man’ statue to be reinstalled
BATAVIA – The “Self-Made Man” statue that was damaged last year could be reinstalled on North River Street by spring.
Last week, the Batavia City Council approved a staff recommendation that the statue base be clad in the same granite that was used for North River Street. The city will get bids for the project, City Engineer Noel Basquin said.
Basquin had pushed for the base to be clad in granite. The statue’s sculptor also said using granite would enhance the piece and make it seem like it was more part of the street and permanent.
