The area around the 9/11 Memorial Wall at Richard Presser Park (Webb Field) on Central Ave is getting an attractive enhancement, thanks to a $97,000 federal grant obtained from US Congresswoman Nita Lowey. Construction work has started on a new sidewalk along Central Ave (bordering the wall). There will be benches, planters, seasonal plantings, ornamental trees, evergreen trees and beautiful flowers. The sidewalk will be completed (weather permitting) in about 3-4 weeks.
The 9/11 wall was organized by the Westchester Arts Council. The Rotary Clubs donated funds for the construction of the wall. There are 2,000 tiles. Westchester residents have attended workshops expressing what 9/ll meant to them on 6 by 6 colorful tiles. Images range from the patriotic, such as people saluting flags, to the pastoral, including scenes of grassy fields and other lovely places far removed from the destruction of that day.
