You need to update your website. Thankfully all the confederate statues have been removed. I was there in November, and they were gone. A beuatiful area to drive around. Gorgeous homes.

Just another street. Nothing special to see. I personally would stay out of the City limits altogether.

Yeah, y'all need to update this. Richmond said "Giddyup Losers" to general Lee and company. Those statues are getting melted down somewhere right about now...

Virginia, the birthplace of presidents, has destroyed its history. Came to Richmond and was disappointed to see culture destroyed with no positive impact. Such narrow-minded intolerance to destroy history rather than to learn from it.

This used to be a beautiful street. Now it looks like a bomb went off, and to what end. What was really gained by this. Are people really better off, has education or housing improved in richmond. No, you just lost a great attraction for nothing

We went after the Robert E. Lee statute was removed. We enjoyed seeing the Arthur Ashe statute and the beautiful homes on the avenue.

Monument avenue is no more. Monuments have been removed. There is only one remaining there. There is no point in going there. Do not waste your time.

American history destroyed. Not able to put into words. Americans are better than that. Richmond will hopefully not allow more of their history to be desecrated.

Mayor Levar Stoney is directly responsible for the destruction of Monument Avenue. He let terrible people come to our beautiful city and destroy it. He will not be mayor again that's for sure. He's going to try to climb the political ladder but his lack of action to protect the citizens and city of Richmond will not be forgotten.
I sat in horror afraid for my life and the life of my family when the destruction of Monument Avenue took place. I live very close and the police did nothing to stop this. I was shocked and appalled this was allowed to take place.
This is not a political rant, this was mass destruction allowed to take place right in front of my very eyes. Should the monuments have been removed? As much as I thought they were beautiful, if their very presence hurt even one person, they had to go, but the way the mayor of Richmond let them go down with such violence was totally wrong.

The monuments are defiled and defaced. The Jackson monument no longer has Jackson or his horse on it. BLM has an info booth near the Gen. Lee monument. Not much parking in the area.
