“Lunchtime on the WTC Plaza” photograph by Paula Barr

Barr was commissioned by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey in the late 1980s to photograph the most important images of New York City, which included the World Trade Center, The Empire State Building, The Statue of Liberty, The Bridges of New York and more.

The first scarf is based upon a color photograph titled, “Liberty Between the Towers,” which Barr shot from an abandoned pier to capture Lady Liberty centered between the two World Trade Towers. It shows the skyline of the city on a beautiful day. The second print on a scarf is a black and white photograph called, “Lunchtime on the WTC Plaza,” depicting visitors and workers gathering on the World Trade Center’s plaza in 1986.

The scarves will retail for $95 and will be sold at the 9/11 Memorial Retail Store at the 9/11 Memorial Museum, which opens May 21. The scarves will also be available at www.911memorial.org/catalog.
