YONKERS, N.Y. – A well-known mural that has long depicted native tribes and Dutch explorers and traders along the Hudson River appears to be nearing the end of its life and local activists aren’t pleased, according to News 12.

The mural on an exterior wall at 36 Main St., has been neglected for years, according to News 12, which reported that Mayor Mike Spano called the entire building “unsafe” and said it must be demolished.

Spano told News 12 that the owner of the building, Rising Development, would like to put up a new building in the spot and that the city intends to commission an artist to repaint the mural based on high-resolution photographs of the current work.

Still, a group of activists are trying to stop the mural’s destruction, according to News 12.
