New York State Of Mind
“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 the 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 that were lost. Their spirit and sacrifice will never be forgotten.”
Pretty statue outside the Customs House
A monument dedicated to soldiers who have died defending the American coastline.
Wall Street's Charging Bull symbolizes aggressive financial optimism and prosperity. The sculputre was created following the 1987 stock market crash as a symbol of the "strength and power of the American people." I feel more patriotic already!
