Day 771

9/11 memorial #188

February 8th, 2014

This monument, entitled Postcards, honors the 270-some Staten Islanders who lost their lives in the 9/11 attacks, as well as another who died in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. The two oversized "postcards" frame the skyline of Lower Manhattan, where the twin towers stood; on the inner sides of the postcards, each victim is memorialized with a granite plaque and a carved profile of his or her head in silhouette.
