Overview

“Mommy, mommy, look, Spider-Man. Please, let’s go.” As they approach, the excited young boy’s eyes gleam, his face smiles brightly, and there is energy in his steps as he walks briskly towards the statue. “Wow, it really is Spider-Man!”


A statue of Spider-Man in Forest Hills will be very popular among children and families in the neighborhood. They will learn and take pride that Spider-Man grew up in Forest Hills. It is the  hometown of one of the world’s greatest superheroes, and a resident of the most diverse county in the country, Queens.


It will be a grassroots, community sponsored project, with a mission to celebrate the history, vibrancy, and charm of Forest Hills. It will be inspiring, fun and exciting!

Community Benefits

People absolutely love this project! Everyone is very excited about having a statue of Spider-Man in Forest Hills. Spider-Man will bring joy and smiles to children and adults alike. Who does not like Spider-Man? 

It will be life-size, approachable and photo worthy. Forest Hills residents will be proud to share Spider-Man with their neighbors, friends, and family. Hopefully, it will become an integral part of Forest Hills for many, many years to come.


Statues Define New York City
New York City has great statues that are iconic. Five statues that come to mind are the Statue of Liberty, Prometheus in Rockefeller Center, Charging Bull near Wall Street, Alice in Wonderland in Central Park and the Unisphere in Flushing Meadows Corona Park. These statues are known throughout the Unites States and the world at large. 
Statues bring life to New York City and its many great neighborhoods. They are destinations for residents and tourists. They bring people together and are cherished by all.


We strongly believe Spider-Man will do the same for Forest Hills.
