An Oneonta Mystery…Who Is This Man?
My friend Tom Pondolfino who works for the Oneonta Public Works department, is looking for someone to help him solve this mystery.
This fine looking statue, actually a bust, was tossed into the street a few years back in Center City Oneonta. Apparently a city street sweeper came along and swept it up. It was later found and someone took a shine to it. It has been sitting in the general supervisor’s office ever since.
What a fine looking bust, but who is it? My vote says it belonged to an English major at one of the area’s colleges and that the bust is writer John Steinbeck. I imagine a college party getting a “little out of hand” and the bust ended up in the street.
Well, that is my guest. What do you think?
