Coral Gables is not a city filled with statues, like Rome or Washington, D.C. Maybe it’s because these cities are so much older and have more of a heritage to honor. But here in the Gables we have our own heroes, as well as creatures we revere. And being such a green city, we appreciate the maxim of poet Joseph Beach: “A garden without its statue is like a sentence without its verb.” So here are the statues of the Gables. If you can name where they are located, then you are a true aficionado of the Gables. Send your answers to Anyone who guesses correctly will receive a poster, “The View from 37th Avenue,” the cover of our Summer issue.
