The 9/11 @tilesforamerica Memorial Wall at Murly Square on the intersection of Seventh Avenue & Greenwich Avenue. The memorial began in the immediate days following 9/11 and is located immediately across the street from what was then St. Vincent’s hospital, one of many hospitals where 9/11 victims were taken. The tile memorial was started by Village resident Lorrie Veasey who owned the nearby Our Name is Mud ceramic store and gallery. Lorrie wanted to dig and help with rescue at the World Trade Center site. Unable to do so, she instead made doves, angels, and American flags, hanging them on the chain link fence at Murly Square. Almost immediately the wall became a community message board where the Villagers came together, blanketing the fence with photos and messages for their missing loved ones and friends. As people came together to share emotions, comfort each other, and seek solace, they began adding their own tiles with their personal messages. Very soon tiles with messages of support and solidarity poured in from across the nation and the world. All being added to the wall. While some tiles still hang as a permanent memorial, other delicate tiles have been carefully moved to indoor exhibit locations, including the Jefferson Market Library. Find out much more on our bio-link, including details about the Walk of Remembrance later today and updates about a new home for the tiles.

All quiet in Father Demo Square on this wet Monday. But who was Father Demo? Father Antonio Demo (1870-1936), was Pastor of the church of Our Lady of Pompei, on the northwest corner of the park at the Bleecker/Carmine Street intersection. The church was constructed in 1926 replacing the original which once stood on what is now Sixth Avenue. Father Demo led the campaign to build the new church, a rectory, and parochial school. The new church was dedicated on October 7, 1928. The church flourished under Father Demo, expanding its liturgical music programs, opening a day care center, and holding bazaars. His spiritual care was exemplified by his hard work and generosity of spirit in response to the tragic Triangle Shirtwaist Company fire, which claimed the lives of 123 women and 23 men on March 25, 1911. In 1941 the public plaza was improved and expanded and named in memory of Father Demo.
