January 20, 2022 Manhattan, New York – Teddy Roosevelt Statue continues to be quietly removed in the middle of the night from outside of the American Museum of Natural History.
The bronze statue was covered by an orange curtain and was at least partially removed the previous night. Additional removal of the statue continued into early Thursday morning.
The plans to disassemble the statue in sections was carried out by the museum and planned since last June, when the The New York City Public Design Commission voted on its relocation.
The statue, that has stood at the steps of the American Museum of Natural History since 1940, is being removed in sections with a crane and will be moved to its new home, The New Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library in Medora, North Dakota.
The statue will be transported to storage and is planned to be shipped to the presidential library within a few weeks.
