The Sphere

The Plaque which sits at the base of the Sphere

The Sphere that was once centered in the plaza between WTC 1 and WTC 2 now sits in Battery Park nearby. Amazingly the Sphere survived the 9/11 attacks as almost everything around it was reduced to rubble.  To many of us it has become a symbol that we too were battered, but NEVER destroyed.  The Plaque which sits at the base of the Sphere gives a brief history and description of the sculpture.
