  • В Центральном парке снесут статую врача проводившего эксперименты на рабынях

The statue of Dr. James Marion Sims, a 19th-century doctor who experimented on slaves, was moved Tuesday morning from Central Park to the Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn, where the controversial physician is buried.

The city's Public Design Commission voted Monday to accept a mayoral panel's recommendation to remove the statue of Dr. J. Marion Sims, known as the father of modern gynecology.

Commission co-Chairman Tom Finkelpearl called the transfer of the statue of Sims in a cemetery, green-wood "an important step to... make public spaces more open, unifying and welcoming for all". But critics say his use of enslaved African-American women as experimental subjects was unethical.

Of all the controversial city statues considered by the commission in their review, Sims' statue is the only one that will be moved. The bronze statue, previously held upon a granite base in the park, will rest on a low pedestal in the cemetery, The New York Times reported.
