*Which island had the statue of Jesus until it was blown down from a hurricane in 1995. This Island is also called the City of Love by locals. Thanks!

Connie,

Adianna is right.... The Statue was up on Peace Hill. There is a sugar mill there and a sign about the statue. So it would be on " Love City " St. John!!!

It's very sad that St. John lost the Christ of the Caribbean statue. It was very symbolic of the island community. Hopefully, someone will fund the re-building of the statue, however, I don't think the national park will do so-not enough funding.
