1. Double Check Marker
Inscription. Double Check
by Seward Johnson

The “everyman” businessman presence in Liberty Park, who, before had faded into the background amongst his human brethren, has been called “the survivor”. He was lifted, battered yet whole, from the dust and rubble after the September 11, 2001 tragedy. The parks have since been rebuilt, and this bronze man sits near his original site, bearing scratches and bruises he sustained that day as a poignant reminder of hope and endurance for us all.
