Wednesday seemed like a normal day in Columbus Park in Trenton. People were walking through the park or enjoying the weather on benches. But the Christopher Columbus statue that had stood in the park for more than 60 years had been removed just that morning.

A group distributed food in front of the empty perch where the statue once stood as if nothing happened. The statue had been located on the edge of the historic Italian neighborhood of Chambersburg.
