    You have to be careful about leaving 'too good' art out in public, unless it's extremely​ durable.

    Having visited the 9/11 Memorial site for the first time a few days ago, I don't understand why they can't put the damaged sphere in its original place?

    There seems to be plenty of available space, and the sphere would make a strong statement when positioned between the reflecting pools, close to the Museum.

    Louise Nevelson's "Sky Gate, New York" was located in the mezzanine of the North Tower overlooking the plaza.

    I agree. The sphere needs to be (re)placed somewhere on the site.

    Totally agree. However, the structure beneath was not designed to support the sphere. Something I read somewhere says that when Michael Arad designed the site, the artifacts recovered from 9/11 would only be showed in the museum, and that the park area was to be kept in its current configuration.

    I loved the artworks; I felt that they blended well with the look of the WTC complex. To each his own, I guess.

    I miss the Calder. It was originally at the corner of Vesey & Church. Later they moved it to the bridge to 7 World Trade. I assume it was crushed beyond repair.
