Tiles for America Back on Display at Mulry Square in Greenwich Village

Mulry Square

With the new Metropolitan Transit Authority ventilation system complete (looking like a fake townhouse), the Tiles for America have been permanently reinstalled on the three walls of the new structure. The tiles were created after 9/11 by artists and local residents, and spontaneously placed on the chain-link fence that surrounded the empty lot where the new MTA facility now resides. It became a gathering place for the people in the community, with additional tiles adorning the fence over the years.
