The 9/11 Tiles for America Project



Program Locations:

Jefferson Market Library, First Floor (Map and directions)
Not accessible to wheelchairs


Ceramic tiles that hung on Seventh Avenue South as a 9/11 memorial for 11 years after the attacks are on display again in the West Village - at the Jefferson Market Library! 

“To have them in another village landmark is very healing,” said City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who helped bring the commemorative tiles to the library for the display. “These tiles, both symbolically and visually beautiful, serve as a memorial to those who perished on 9/11, and are a tribute to the compassion and strength of our city.”
