I think a sculpture dedicated to the iron workers who built the WTC.

That is correct Caedes. A photograph was taken several stories up of some of the builders of the towers eating lunch. After 9-11 this commemorative statue was placed at ground zero.

Great memorial. But I'm a bit confused. I read about the famous photograph of these iron workers eating lunch was during the construction of the Empire State Building?

Actually we both stand corrected. Alot of websites were giving misinformation around the time I posted this due to the statues location next to ground zero. The photograph was taken in 1932 800 feet above ground during the building of the RCA Building at Rockefeller Center. I'm sorry for the confusion . . .

Yes, I can see it was built in the 1930s. These iron workers are wearing the cap workers wore at that time. Wonderful view of past history. I like the statuary work.Interesting image..Thanks!

I was noticing that all of the statues have (for the most part) cloth caps. At a time when everyone had some sort of cap covering their head, it makes me wonder where all those caps went? Do our landfills have layers of cloth caps (tam-o'shanter age) to be more recently covered by unopened IKEA packages (Ik-ee-age)?

But I digress. Your picture caught my eye and made me think. Nicely done.

I originally saw the photo years ago as a poster and a computer wallpaper. it is from 1932 and you can see the photo and read about it here. Looking at the photo, Central Park is clearly visible behind them.
