Bell of Hope

In 2002 on the anniversary of the September 11 attacks, the Bell of Hope was presented to the people of New York by the Lord Mayor of London and the Archbishop of Canterbury. It was created by England's renowned Whitechapel Foundry, which also cast the Liberty Bell and London's Big Ben. The Bell's pedestal base was build locally from eastern brownstone, and directly beneath the bell inlaid on the pedestal is a brass footprint of the World Trade Center Towers.
The bell is rung every September 11, symbolizing the triumph of hope over tragedy.
