Staten Island September 11th Memorial Sculpture -

May 21, 2011 – This is the 911 memorial located in Staten Island, NY near the Staten Island Ferry terminal. The memorial points in the direction of the fallen World Trade Center and is titled “Postcards.” The Staten Island community of New York City suffered a loss of over 270 people on September 11th, 2001. Over $2 million dollars was allocated for the construction of this September 11 memorial on for the borough of Staten Island.

The artist who designed the memorial, Masayuki Sono, had his entry selected from out of almost 200 other submissions made by artists from NYC and around the USA. The design of the 9/11 memorial features two thin structures resembling postcards which from a distance appear to be two outstretched wings or a flower in bloom. To honor the individuals who lost their lives on 911, Masayuki’s design incorporates a 9”x11” granite plaque for each person lost. Each plaque bears the victim’s birth date and place of work on September 11, 2001 and is shaped like their profile in silhouette.

The Staten Island 9/11 Memorial is located on Staten Island’s North Shore Waterfront Esplanade right next to the Staten Island Ferry Terminal and the Richmond County Ballpark in the St. George area of the borough. The site provides beautiful views of New York Harbor, Lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty. It’s a beautiful location for a memorial to Staten Islanders lost during the terrorist attacks in New York City on September 11, 2001.

We have made a few of these images available as prints here:

Art by the Ferry Festival - 2011 - Staten Island, New York City

May 21, 2011 – We were out and about today for this year’s annual Art by the Ferry Festival in Staten Island, New York City. It is an all free street-wide art exhibit packed with street musicians, regular bands, and all sorts of artwork. The Art by the Ferry Festival gives Staten Island artists several great venues to display their work in.

The Staten Island Creative Community (SICC) presented the Art by the Ferry Festival from May 20th – 22nd, 2011. The event started with a reception on May 20th, 2011 from 7-9pm, and continued throughout the weekend.

A quarter mile of the St. George waterfront, next to the Staten Island Ferry terminal was turned into a festival of street performers, musicians, craftspeople, story-tellers, writers, photographers, painters, printmakers and sculptors. The Art by the Ferry Festival extended from the Staten Island Ferry terminal, all the way to Tompkinsville Park. Almost 80 Staten Island based painters, photographers, sculptors and printmakers and hybrid art-makers participated in this great event.

There were numerous bands playing at both the start point and ending location, including: The Earaches, Queen Tipsy, The Paul Hurst Band, The Stapleton Jazz Ensemble, and Rob Ross among many others. We were also lucky enough to spot Heth and Jed performing at the Staten Island Ferry waiting platform.
