Today, Beyond Paris 


This "Field of Flags" in Battery Park honors those whose lives were lost on 9/11 and those who tried to save them*.  There are over 3,000 flags, the stripes  are lists of names.  Additionally there are flags representing the 92 countries who shared in this loss.
*To see a special exhibit honoring 911 heroes, go to Joe McNally's blog...
and to Peter Turnley to see his 9/11 images and reflections. 

The new World Trade Center can be seen rising behind 
The Sphere 
a Fritz Koenig sculpture that originally occupied the plaza in front of the WTC.  The piece was damaged but not destroyed in the attack.
