This year is the 55th anniversary of the JFK assassination. Plus, it's the 50th anniversary of the RFK and MLK murders.
A JFK statue greets visitors to Pittston as they exit the Water Street bridge and turn on to Kennedy Boulevard.
I took my first up close look at the statue last week, and it really is well done. My only beef is with the location. I know they wanted the statue along Kennedy Boulevard, and they wanted to note Kennedy's downtown visit here during the 1960 campaign. But, the corner of a parking lot isn't the most scenic location. Perhaps they will eventually eat up another few parking spaces for more green space and a mini park.
