Statue of Liberty and All Star Game Come To East Village

Chicago White Sox Statue in the East Village of New York City

All-Star Game in the E.V.

The 2008 Major League Baseball All Star Game presented by Froot of the Loom – EVP’s tighty-whiteys of choice** – has come to the East Village of New York City in the form of a 7-foot Statue of Liberty replica festooned in Chicago White Sox logofication.

Froot of the Loom is no doubt excited to be in the East Village in such a prominent location as the corner of 4th Avenue and 14th Street in front of Walgreens. EVP last visited Walgreens in 1989. It may be time to go back and see if the post-Halloween candy corn is still on sale for 3 for a dollar.

The ChiSox statue is not the only MLB Lady Liberty to darken the street corners of NYC. The MLB website has the full details on the Statues of Liberty which you can download here and includes the following locations:
