Man, that statue. I'm probably alone here but I can't believe the "silent guardian, the watchful protector" had a statue unveiled in his honor. I sat in my seat actually looking like Gordon when that happened. Looked like Gordon couldn't believe it either.
Batman shouldn't get invited or attend fashion shows or public affairs and he certainly shouldn't get statues (I wonder where the sculptor got the reference for such an accurate looking depiction). That's Superman stuff right there.
The unveiling of the Batsignal (and the destruction of the Batsignal) was meaningful enough.
