New York in New York County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
St. Mary Magdalene
First Witness to the Resurrection
Artist: John Collier
Mary Magdalene honors those who perished in the airplanes that crashed into Towers One and Two: the passengers and the pilots and flight attendants who served then, as well as all the volunteers who came to serve at Ground Zero after the event. This statue also honors those who have come here to mourn their beloved dead, especially those who do not even have the small consolation of having recovered their remains.
