Merello/Volta Monument: This 8 foot tall bronze sculpture is a depiction of a grief stricken young woman in her wedding dress. She is clutching a bouquet of flowers and appears to have fallen on the church’s steps. Time and weather have only served to make this sculpture more forlorn by etching stains running down her face that look remarkably like tears. Amazingly, nothing else is known about the monument, but the rumor persists that she was a relative of a gangster and was shot for revenge.This is located in Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn, New York.
