Paul Bunyan Jr. Statue

A statue of Paul Bunyan Jr. stands in front of the city hall building in Hackensack. He was formerly next to the Lucette statue just down the road. He's been recently outfitted with a mask for Covid-19.

[Seth H, 10/13/2020]

Years ago, Lucette -- Paul Bunyan's girlfriend -- had been taken down for repairs. When she returned, Junior was there as well (It was said she'd been away giving birth). Junior had disappeared by 2012 and was relocated a few years later.
