Description
The Abraham de Peyster monument is in storage on Randalls Island, in a facility managed by Parks and Recreation, City of New York. The piece awaits assignment, having been moved in 2004 from Hanover Square in lower Manhattan to accommodate a British memorial dedicated to victims of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks that destroyed the World Trade Center. (This 9/11 work, in this database at ID #1254, is titled “British Garden at Hanover Square 9/11 WTC.”) De Peyster (b. 1657, New Amsterdam; d. 1728, New York), a notable and influential merchant, served as mayor of New York, from 1691-1695, as well as in other colonial governing posts. The images above were taken September 7, 2003.
