August 1, 2004. Today, the New York Times reports that the bridge portion of the mural has been painted over with a "Wall for Rent" sign.
Apparently, the wall is owned by Cooper Union College and they estimate that the wall will bring in $5,000 to $10,000 a month in advertising revenue.
Cooper Union and a nonprofit group, CityArts, sponsored the mural at a cost of about $70,000 shortly after the 911 tragedy.
It was created by Hope Gangloff and Jason Search and student artists.
November 2004. The image was completely painted out and is no longer there.
