Wavy-metal cross near St. Peter’s Roman Catholic Church, stands in the place where for several years stood temporarily, simple and covered with rust World Trade Center cross, which is in fact is a group of steel beams from the collapsed building. The latter was moved to its permanent location, the museum at Ground Zero area. A reflective, wavy-metal sculpture was made by Jon Krawczyk, a sculptor from California.
