It's also one of the best audiobooks I've ever heard. It's (almost) better when read aloud.

The Ignatius Riley statue remains right where it was originally place on Canal Street. However, the D.H. Holmes Department Store in which it was placed (and where he waited for his mother under the eyes of Patrolman Mancuso) is no more. The store was bought by the Dillard chain, and subsequently became the very nice Chateau Sonesta Hotel.
There is little chance that the statue will ever be moved. Things change very slowly, if ever in New Orleans, and since that location is a literary landmark, it will probably remain there forever.
