Tribute in Light and Engaging Lower Manhattan

The Municipal Art Society has reached an agreement with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to stage Tribute in Light through 2008 from an MTA facility just south of the World Trade Center site. A grant from the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation made it possible for the MAS to purchase special lighting fixtures last year and will cover annual production costs through 2008. The illumination was conceived by a group of talented New York artists and architects and first produced in March 2002.

Sincere thanks goes to those individuals who have contributed to the Tribute in Light Fund. Contributions to this effort may be sent to: Tribute in Light Fund, 457 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10022.

Our Engaging Lower Manhattan website summarizes more than 15 key planning initiatives currently under way in Lower Manhattan. It also gives a broader view through a calendar of upcoming meetings, events and deadlines — a feature not found on any other website. The amount of new development downtown can be overwhelming, and this website aims to organize and simplify the numerous planning initiatives in a user-friendly format, making it easier for the public to learn about this exciting and dynamic planning process. It provides links to specific project documents and information about opportunities for public participation and education, project by project.

Tribute in Light is made possible by a grant from the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation, which is funded through Community Development Block Grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
