7. Wall Street Plaza

Wall St. Plaza at 88 Pine St. is a light, airy space, just like the building for which it was built. There are two interesting features in this special permit plaza located between Water St. and Front St. First is a two-piece abstract sculpture created by Taiwanese artist Yu Yu Yang. It looks as if a large stainless steel circle has been punched out of the large stainless steel square it sits next to. There are also two bronze initials taken from the bow of the Queen Elizabeth I on display alongside a letter and telegram grieving its loss when it caught fire in 1972 while it was being prepared to serve as a floating university in Hong Kong.
