Looking back at 9/11 • A special Villager supplement

Out of the Ashes

The tiles on the chain-link fence at Greenwich Ave. and Seventh Ave. South are the last spontaneous 9/11 memorial left in the city. They were painted by children at Our Name Is Mud, the former ceramic studio next to the triangular lot, which is owned by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority. Not all the tiles feature images of the World Trade Center; some have written messages, others symbols of peace. Recently, to safeguard them before Tropical Storm Irene hit town, a group of P.S. 41 parents took them down, and now, with the help of the community, are putting them back up again.
