Talking Statues is an original Danish concept giving voices to statues through modern technology for the first time in the world. It became a success and later was realized in the cities of Helsinki, London, San Diego, Berlin, Chicago etc. The project in New York is now running. Please find a map on this site and instructions for use. The Talking Statues recreate an image of how the city has changed over several centuries and was built not from a single nationality, but from many nations.
