nyclookup Sculpted by German Fritz Koening, "The Sphere" once stood in the plaza between the original World Trade Center towers. It was recovered after the September 11 attacks and eventually relocated to Battery Park, where it now stands (without repairs) as a memorial to the victims of the attacks. 3d

mrs_nicole_l The Sphere, that once stood in between the World Trade Center towers (left picture), still structurally intact after being damaged by the debris from the airliners as well as the collapsing skyscrapers themselves...survived the attacks with only a few dents and holes (right picture). It was quite the experience to see this sculpture first hand earlier this year. #thesphere #911 #wewillneverforget 1w

hopetheplanpony My thoughts are with all the friends and families that lost someone in the tragic 9/11 that happened 13 years ago today. It's something that sadly no one will ever forget. I took this picture when I was in New York 3 years ago and the sculpture is called The Sphere and it stood in between the 2 towers. It's got scrapes and dents from when the towers fell down but seeing it in real life just makes you stop and think about the tragedy. It's in a lovely location to. I'm thinking of this place on this day #911 #TwinTowers #WorldTradeCentre #USA #America #TheSphere #NewYork #NYC #NEVERFORGET 1w

e.n.d91 The most intriguing sculpture to me as a kid was The Sphere. It stood in the plaza of the twin towers. Fritz Koenig created it as a symbol of world peace. On 9/11 when buildings collapsed around it, The Sphere; a symbol of peace, was damaged, but not destroyed. The irony is chilling. "The Sphere was placed in Battery Park on March 11, 2002 as a temporary memorial to all who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center.
This eternal flame was ignited on September 11, 2002 in honor of all those who were lost. Their spirit and sacrifice will never be forgotten." #NeverForget911 #RIPVictimsof911 #TheSphere #GroundZero #WorldTradeCenter #TwinTowers #NineEleven #wtc #NorthTower #SouthTower #WTCTheSphere #FritzKoenig #WorldTradeCenterPlaza #BatterPark #BestofNewYork #GodBless
