Like the original the Schenectady Sister has an island home.  Created by the intersections of State, Washington Ave and Highway 5 this island is filled with flower beds, shade trees, small hills and wandering walkways.  She sits proudly in the center atop a pedestal contained in an eleven point start planter.

UPDATE: as of 8/2021 the following was received about the park area where this Liberty Sister stood. She is reported to be in storage and no plans to return her to her spot in this park. See linked story  from the Times Union website:
