Addabbo supports plan to create Spider-Man statue in Forest Hills

“Hearing of Forest Hills resident Larry Ng’s idea to create a life-size statue of the superhero Spider-Man has certainly piqued my interest,” said State Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. “For over 60 years in the comics, the fictional Peter Parker has lived in Forest Hills when he is not being Spider-Man and saving the citizens of New York City. To have his likeness right here in the town he calls home will be positive for the community — like the Captain America statue in Brooklyn — especially to the children of Forest Hills who can look at that work of art and hopefully it can inspire a new generation to do great things and become ‘superheroes’ in their lives. I appreciate that this idea has been brought forward, as well as the efforts of the volunteers and supporters of this project. I hope to see this project advance and have this wonderful vision become reality.”
