The Sphere

Okay, this isn't the picture I took (mine wouldn't load after dozens of attempts) but this is what it looks like.

The sign reads:

For three decades, this sculpture stood in the plaza of the World Trade Center. Entitled "The Sphere," it was conceived by artist Fritz Koenig as a symbol of world peace. It was damaged during the tragic events of September 11, 2001, but endures as an icon of hope and indestructible spirit of this country. The Sphere was placed here on March 11, 2002 as a temporary memorial to all who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center.
This eternal flame was ignited on September 11, 2002 in honor of all those who were lost. Their spirit and sacrifice will never be forgotten


  • That makes me so sad. I haven't been to NY since right after 9/11, so I haven't had the opportunity to see all they've done to that area. Post more pics if you can, I'd love to see them!

    And YAY for delurking! :)
