MTA To Incorporate 9/11 Tiles in New Project

NY1 News

What started out as an impromptu tribute to the victims of the September 11th attacks will now have a permanent home in Greenwich Village.

One of the Tiles for America

The MTA is planning to use thousands of square ceramic tiles that were painted after the attacks as part of its plans for a new ventilation plant.The squares will be featured on the exterior of the building.

They were originally part of a display titled “Tiles for America” where, in the days and months following the attacks, they adorned a fence near Greenwich and Seventh Avenues.

The building is expected to take less than four years to complete.
