New York’s memorial street murals to 9/11

September 6, 2012

While the official 9/11 memorial is now open downtown, some unofficial street murals in neighborhoods across the city continue to commemorate the day in their own small ways.

These are some of the first memorials that went up, visceral responses to the city’s darkest hour. This one above, in Gravesend, is gathering grime under the F train tracks.

Graffiti just beneath it mars this commemorative mural on West Broadway.

I think this one is in the East Village, but I didn’t record the neighborhood correctly. Can anyone confirm? The Daily News has a slideshow of more street murals here.
