Rocky Comes Home

And all is right in the world.

Now the statue may be making a comeback. The Fairmount Park Commission has approved moving the statue to a site near the foot of the Art Museum steps. That will also require city Art Commission approval.


But everyone isn’t happy about the move, for instance the Park Commissioner:

"If a film about Donald Duck in Philadelphia comes out," he wondered, "do we put a Donald Duck statue in our park system? Rocky is fine. But other films have relevance, too. Where do we stop?"

Pictures of the new location can be seen here.
