The debate came after Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop said the monument would stand in a “respected place”. He suggested moving it 60 metres to the Hudson River forefront, opposite the site of the terror attack on the World Trade Centre in New York. He had previously said the monument would be put in storage while Exchange Place was converted into a park, which sparked outrage among Poles and Jews in the US and Poland. One of the participants of the talks with mayor Fulop earlier this year was Poland's Consul in New York, Maciej Golubiewski. "It was an interesting story for America and it did contribute to some education of the American public I hope" the Consul told Radio Poland.
