Outdoor Statues in NYC - Harriet Tubman Memorial

This statue of Harriet Tubman  is at the intersection of 122st street, Frederick Douglass Boulevard and St Nicholas Street in Harlem. There was controversy about her facing south, but I get why she is facing south.  The following link is from the NYTimes talking about it in 2008:http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/11/13/why-is-harriet-tubman-facing-south/
