Double Check Memorial
June 17th - June 23rd, 2005
Damaged Downtown Statue Restored to Honor 9/11 Victims

Friday, June 17:
A popular New York City sculpture of a businessman, formerly located at downtown's Liberty Plaza, has been restored after sustaining significant damage during the 9/11 attacks, the Daily News reported.

After 9/11, the battered bronze statue -- named "Double Check" -- became a symbol of those who lost their lost lives on September 11, 2001. In the days following the attacks, rescue workers placed an FBI hard hat on its head and a coil from a fire hose at its side while others placed messages honoring loved ones who died, the paper explained.

The statue's sculptor, Seward Johnson, restored "Double Check" in his Mercerville, New Jersey, studio, removing several layers of toxic dust from its exterior. After it was cleaned, Johnson gave the statue an ashen-gray coating to replicate the way it appeared after 9/11, the News said.

Johnson also created a twin casting of his original statue to serve as a 9/11 memorial. It includes the same mementos left by those in the days following 9/11. The original "Double Check" will return to Liberty Plaza after a planned renovation of the park is completed next year, the paper added.

Shot with a 1913 No. 2 Folding Pocket Brownie, first roll so I didn't have everything sussed out yet. Neopan 100.
