Patriots and Heroes Park

Field review by the editors.

Williamsville, New York

Funded by Russell Salvatore, who owns the steakhouse across the street. Patriots and Heroes Park features a miniature Golden Gate Bridge chopped in half, a Statue of Liberty, an Empire State Building, and a Niagara Falls, as well as a replica of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, a statue of the Archangel Michael, a tribute to The Battle of the Bulge (complete with a realistic Nazi tank), a memorial to the victims of Flight 3407, and a reproduction of the flag-raising on the ruins of the World Trade Center.

Salvatore has said that he's not afraid to die because he's been granted permission to be buried among his many monuments.
