New York Talking Statues Project Gives NYC's Statues a Voice You Can Listen To

The New York Talking Statues project is a new interactive way to learn the history of 35 of New York City's statues across all five boroughs. The interesting part is that you scan a QR code on the statue using your phone, and the story is told from the voice and perspective of the subject.

We have chosen the statues for the project from 3 different angles – first of all, there will be historical statues telling us the story of New York City, how the city started and how the statues became a part of it. Secondly, we have chosen the statues erected by immigrants in memory of their culture. And then the project will have statues of famous artists, who have become an important part of New York City.

Check out the project page to see the locations of all 35 New York statues and more information about the project's origins.
