The New York State Women Veterans Memorial honors women in the military over the past 200 years. Dedicated in 1998, it serves as an educational item to inform the public of the role women have played in the armed forces.
The memorial is a 80-foot high bronze statue depicting Lady Liberty standing on the crown of England (the NYS flag), symbolizing the strength and commitment of women who have defended our nation.
The memorial is on Madison Avenue, near the NYS Museum.
