This sure makes me smile. The corner of Seventh and Greenwich avenues was once a makeshift tribute covered with tiles made by mourners and loved ones of people killed Sept. 11 -- aka Tiles for America -- before the city decided put a ventilation plant there -- and then a crazy lady said the good lord contacted her and told her to
steal take them home before Hurricane Irene struck. (Yeah, I know.) I met her once when she brought a few of them back to put on display and trust me, she's crazy.
There's now a facade that covers the aforementioned ventilation plant. It sure would be nice to see the tiles back where they belong. Hey, lady!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How it used to be:
