9/11 Memorial

The 9/11 commemorative tiles around the former MTA lot at Greenwich Avenue and 7th Avenue South were one of our city’s most poignant and recognized memorials of the tragic World Trade Center terrorist attacks. However, after they were created, many fell or were broken off, damaged or cracked, or yellowed from time and pollution. There was little evidence of their being cared for by the MTA, on whose property they were located. In the hopes of preventing the loss of this memorial, Village Preservation wrote the MTA, urging them to either take better care of the memorial tiles, or to help find a suitable permanent home for them where they can be preserved and honored.
