2. The Kowsky Plaza Berlin Wall
A concert by the Julliard School Conservatory of Music and the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler Berlin took place in Battery Park City in 2004, overlooking the Statue of Liberty and billed as a friendship concert. It was on this occasion, which was also the 15th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, that these two wall slabs were gifted and given a permanent home on the Kowsky Plaza at The Battery. The 12′ high by 8′ wide pieces once stood between Potsdamer Platz and Leipzig Platz. They now sit directly in front of Saint Joseph’s Chapel in the North Cove.
