    Send it back to France because it’s hideous. What a difference a century makes: about 100 years prior France gave us The Statue Of Liberty. 1972: this, er, THING. What a joke.

      I always thought that what Chase Plaza needs is more trees with seating underneath. They would look especially nice surrounding the sunken fountain.
