Liberty Park opening at World Trade Center raises question of Koenig Sphere’s placement

Liberty Park’s opening has renewed debate around the future site of the Koenig Sphere. Damaged in the 2001 terrorist attacks, the Sphere has been housed in Battery Park.

Port Authority Executive Director Pat Foye announced at Liberty Park’s opening that he would like to move the Koenig Sphere into the park, despite his earlier remarks calling for the Sphere’s return to its former home on the World Trade Center Memorial Plaza reported Vincent Barone of AMNY.

The future of the Sphere is still passionately debated.
