Koenig Sphere moving to WTC Liberty Park, Port Authority says

The 25-ton bronze Koenig Sphere, a sculpture badly damaged in the terrorist attacks of September 11 is coming to the World Trade Center site — but not to its original home on the Memorial Plaza, where it remains unwanted, writes Irene Plagianos in DNA Info.

Before year’s end, the beloved Sphere  will be moved to the new Liberty Park, an elevated park atop the Vehicle Security Center overlooking the 9/11 Memorial Plaza.

Many people — especially those in the September 11th community — have fought for the Sphere to return to its original home on the Memorial Plaza, a move that Memorial officials have refused on aesthetic grounds.
