This is a statue of a great American President, unlike the one they currently have. London is full of many tributes throughout this area.

You will only visit if an avid fan or just walking by as I did. So many memorials in London that are so much better

Sadly the bust has been removed from its plinth, after it had been vandalised, apparently, so there nothing of note now to view. Hopefully it is just undergoing renovation before being repositioned.

Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods
cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience.
Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged
between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the
southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of
Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as
pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The
bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it
