Remains of “The Sphere” which Stood at Original World Trade Center Site. Endures as a Symbol of Hope.

Remains of “The Sphere” which Stood at Original World Trade Center Site. On Display at Battery Park near One World Trade Center and See Forever Observatory, New York City, New York. Sign describing the sculpture says: “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.” Photograph taken December 2015.
