I don't let the fact that I am grammatically challenged stop me from.....
Quick search found: http://www.metrotechbid.org/community.php?sub=see_and_doWWII Memorial370 Jay Street off Willoughby St. The memorial was built in honor of Transportation men who lost their lives in WWII. The memorial is a wall of granite stones carved with a map of the world and the names of the men. It is composed of 15 stones, each weighing approximately 500 pounds, and measuring 5 feet wide by 3 feet 6 inch high and 2 feet thick.
Thanks Dorn, my search was too quick.
I love your blog
370 Jay Street still has some occupants including the NYPD, but is mostly vacant. There is a lot of communications equipment that hasn't been moved yet. The reason for the scaffolding and the netting is that some of the building facade has fallen off in the past.A few years ago there was a plan to move the map to the NYC Transit Rail Control Center in Manhattan, but I haven't heard if it's still in the works.This is the inside scoop from a former occupant!
Funny to have a nice map like that almost hidden.
and it is going somewhere else http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/04/26/as-transit-building-is-remade-a-stirring-memorial-will-be-removed/
You do not have to be nice!
