Basic Info:

  • A monument is a city block containing a statue or similar piece of public art, without a building in it. It is functionally equivalent to a street, except that players with the Tagging skill can gain 2 XP for writing graffiti on a monument.
  • This is, game-play wise, an empty block, and cannot be barricaded.
  • After the July 3, 2009 update, some monuments became tall and can be seen from a distance with binoculars

Description

Humans and zombies alike will see the following (permanent) description when standing in front of the monument:

"You are at the Mays Monument, a gold statue of a woman at the top of a low flight of steps."

The Mays Monument, is a monument dedicated to late pitchman Billy Mays. The monument is of an adornment one. A large, twenty foot bronze statue of Mays sits atop a marble base. An engraved plaque adorns the pitchman’s most famous saying "Hi! Billy Mays here for..." The monument was intended to commemorate crazed local politician Charlie Mays, but after hearing of Billy Mays' death local residents were so moved that they immediately went to work reconverting the statue. Luckily for the residents of East Boundwood Charlie’s physique matched that of Billy’s almost exactly. With hammer, chisel, blowtorch, and Mighty Putty, the statue was remade with Billy in mind. A handmade plaque was made and replaced the nonsensical slurred plaque already in place. The humble statue is adorned with flowers and Oxi Clean by locals whom regret Billy's passing.

Billy Mays (July 20, 1958 – June 28, 2009)
