It was recovered from the terrible events and on display in Battery park for a long time, recently (2017) it has now moved to Liberty park and a fitting place for it, well worth a climb up the steps to see it properly, must see.

The sphere is currently located at the world trade cemetery complex in the liberty facing the memorial pool. The liberty park will give you an amazing view of the World Trade Center freedom Towers.

Most people don't know what this is.... when it is moved to the new park that overlooks the 9/11 Memorial Plaza, it will be "home" again- placed appropriately. I know there has been much controversy about the placement of The Sphere, and thousands of people...More

We just happened upon The Sphere on our way to catch the ferry to the Statue of Liberty. Only afterwards did we realise the significance, that it originally stood between the Twin Towers. Look out for it in your visit to Battery Park
