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.

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.
