Church Street and Barclay Street


This twisted, shiny cross has replaced the steel crossbeams from the World Trade Center rubble that were displayed here for years. Some considered those original beams, found in the form of a cross, to be a sign—as I did (of geometry). Of this new piece, the sculptor says: “To me it is more of a body than a cross, and it sort of symbolizes our country.” (Read more of his comments and see pictures of both crosses in this article from the Tribeca Trib.)
