artifact from world trade center placed on 911 wall

The Greenburgh Parks department, thanks to Michael Nestler and his excellent staff, installed an artifact from the World Trade Center on the 911 memorial wall --which is located on Central Ave near the Hartsdale/White Plains border. The wall is special---over 1700 individual painted tiles from artists around the county (including artists from Ardsley, Dobbs Ferry, Hastings, Irvington & Tarrytown)--are displayed on the wall. The artwork was part of a project organized by the Arts Council of Westchester. The large wall was built - thanks to financial donations of the Rotary Clubs.The Port Authority had donated the artifact from the World Trade Center. A few weeks ago I received a letter from the authority asking for a photo showing the artifact. They have donated similar artifacts from the World Trade Center to communities around the country. Nick Scazafave, park foreman who is also a photographer donated his time and personal equipment to take a numberof photos of the artifact.PAUL FEINER
