The mayor's monument commission held another public meeting over the city's so-called "symbols of hate."

Participants got to voice their opinions on which monuments and statues should stay or go.

Hearings in Brooklyn and Queens were held earlier this month.

Christopher Columbus's statue in Columbus Circle still remains at the center of the debate.

Some people think it should be removed, while others want to celebrate the explorer's legacy.

"Christopher Columbus in part of our upbringing — it's part of our history, it's part of our heritage," said one. "When Italians came to this country they were embraced by Christopher Columbus, and it was even more important than the Statue of Liberty."

"I'm encouraging the panelists to be bold and take this historical moment to actually remove these sculptures, particularly the J. Marion Sims and Christopher Columbus and Teddy Roosevelt at the American Museum," said another.

Mayor Bill de Blasio created the panel in August after violent protests erupted in Virginia over Confederate statues.

The next hearings take place next week in the Bronx and Staten Island.

Then, the panel has until next month to submit their recommendations.
