This is a gift that was given to the United States of America by the people of Russia, to commemorate those who died in the attack on the World Trade Center on 9/11.
It is called "Monument to the Struggle Against World Terrorism" and the artist is Zurab Tsereteli.
The tear drop is a very impressive tribute and is located across the river, directly in line with the Statue of Liberty.
Alas there's nothing in here to see
Hi! There are no pictures. Lisa
No photos here, Bobbie. I have seen it, though. I got it in an email.
I'm having the same problem - assumed it was my PC
I couldn't get any pictures either, but I Googled it and found some. I had no idea it was there!
actually, I just realized you can read it if you select the text...
Hmmm ... I see the photos and agree it's a most impressive gift, but I wasn't aware of it previously. Thanks for sharing.
Hugs and blessings,
I haven't ever seen it before, bobbie. Thanks for bringing it to light! :)
I couldn't see the pictures earlier, but can now and they are a lovely tribute, but wonder why so few people know about them??? I have to admit that I didn't. Strange times, I guess. Anyway, thanks for sharing these, they are lovely! and it is good to know.
it's beautiful Bobbie!! I have to find out exactly where it is and visit it
Sad that it wasn't more publicly recognized. such a beautiful tribute.
I can understand why I didn't hear in NZ, but it's strange that no one from the US sent it. thanks for posting about it.
