Since 2006, the statue of Venus has been stored in a garage belonging to the Department of Public Works on North Second Street. Prior to that, since 1998 when it was removed from its perch on a cement slab in the northwest corner of the park, the statue was stored in a garage behind 444 Warren Street.
In February 2012, Gossips, with the assistance of Pat Fenoff, city historian, published three posts about the Venus fountain and its fate. The links to those posts follow:
