Lou Costello Statue

Field review by the editors.

Paterson, New Jersey

One of Jersey's many cultural statesman is honored by his hometown, Paterson, NJ.

Titled "Lou's On First," a life-size bronze of comedy genius Lou Costello carries a bat and wears his trademark derby, now splattered with bird shit. It shares a little grassy square along with a gazebo and a couple of horseshoe pits.

We think that Paterson has the right idea. Now maybe Asbury Park will erect their own statue of Bud Abbott, Newark will erect one of Jerry Lewis, Nutley of Robert Blake, Tenafly of Leslie Gore, Bayonne of Brian Keith, Passaic of Michael J. Pollard, Englewood of John Travolta, Teaneck of Ricky Nelson, and Jersey City of Flip Wilson? Get to work, NJ!
