"The Sphere", Battery Park, New York

The Sphere is displayed at Battery Park, New York and is a large metallic sculpture by Fritz Koenig, conceived as a symbol of world peace. It originally stood in a plaza between the World Trade Center towers and was recovered from the rubble. It was resited in Battery Park, without any repairs, six months after the attacks. The Eternal Flame is a memorial to the victims of September 11th and when the Freedom Tower is completed, the Sphere will be moved back.
