Replacing AIDS Memorial’s granite pavers because the granite color didn't match or the lettering was off.
Stone fabricators in Cold Spring, Minnesota produced the Memorial’s granite pavers, engraved artwork by world-renowned visual artist Jenny Holzer.
This work includes selections from Walt Whitman’s Song of Myself. The Memorial also includes a central granite water feature and benches and will serve as the gateway to the new park.
It is located at the site of the former St. Vincent’s Hospital, epicenter of the local epidemic, and also a block from the LGBT Community Center where ACT UP and other advocacy organizations first began."It will remember the 100,000+ New Yorkers who have died from AIDS and offer the community a place to remember, reflect and learn. Along with the neighboring Stonewall National Monument, this is a proud moment for LGBT historic preservation.”
