History Lesson: The Sphere, once located in WTC, was relocated to Battery Park 6 months after the attack. It is 25 feet high and was put together in Bremen, Germany and designed by Fritz Koenig, a German sculptor. It was meant to symbolize world peace through world trade and set to rotate once every 24 hours.
I was having a picnic at Battery Park yesterday. I started at The Sphere and ended up walking to the end of the park (closer to the 2,3 Chamber st station). I`ve been to Battery Park often, but I never got a chance to look closely at The Sphere. It has such a meaning to it.
