Heritage Trails New York
Heritage Trails New York sign, circa 1995. The front of the sign includes information about the building of the World Trade Center and visitor information. The reverse side includes a map of lower Manhattan, with other area landmarks indicated on the map.
Situated at the corner of Church and Cortlandt Streets in lower Manhattan, this sign provided historical information about the World Trade Center and its construction. On the reverse, a map indicated other nearby points of interest. The sign was damaged on 9/11 and later repaired. It remained in place as a memorial until 2008.
