5. 9/11 Tiles for America Return to 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 at Mulry Square, located on the corner of Seventh Avenue South and Greenwich Street. 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.
