What looks like a Muffler Man statue, this is a famous "Giant" or Paul Bunyan to be exact.
He stands near the junction of NY State Highway 9A, the Saw Mill River Parkway, and I-287 in Elmsford, New York.
Local address is 135 N. Central Ave., Elmsford, NY. The station was once an AMOCO and Paul was done up in red, white and blue paint.
When BP took over, he had to turn yellow and green. Paul has stood there since at least the mid 1960's.
Originally he had two good arms and held an axe! He has only one arm in the photo, and now according to roadsideamerica.com, he has no arms!

months and was already closed when this photo was taken. Two months later, it is now a Citgo.
