The statue of Christopher Columbus at Columbus Circle is not going anywhere.
Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Thursday that the statue will stay put, but that the city will commission a new monument, likely nearby, to recognize indigenous people.
Meanwhile, a statue of Theodore Roosevelt outside the Natural History Museum — which has caused some controversy — will also remain in place.
But de Blasio says a statue of Doctor Marion Sims, who conducted experiments on slaves, will be relocated from Central Park to Greenwood Cemetery, where he is buried.
And the mayor says the city will not remove a marker in the Canyon of Heroes for Henri Philippe Petain, a Nazi-collaborator who was honored for his work in World War I.
The mayor created a monuments commission last year to examine so-called "hate symbols" around the city. But he made the final decision about which monuments would stay and go.
