New York City Sights – The Times Square Kiss

By Brian | August 28, 2010 | Share on Facebook

Walking through Times Square the other day, I came across this giant statue, appropriately standing right near the famous U.S. Army Recruiting Station where the famous VJ-Day Kiss took place back in 1945:

A couple of days later, it was gone. I have no idea from where it came, nor where it went. I’m just glad I took a picture of it so I know I didn’t dream it…

    Man, that’s a big old WTF, isn’t it? My guess would be it was a commemorative thing, since the original photograph was taken on August 14.

    That or a TV/movie prop? Those were the two possibilities that came to my mind…

    Hey, Let Me Google That For You. ;-)


    Even better: a picture of the woman who was kissed in the photo standing next to the statue.

    Good try, Jeff, but no. That picture is from 2005, and the statue is “life size.”. The statue in my picture is 25-30 feet tall (that, or note all the tiny people walking around it… ;-) )
