Newsvine – Vietnam War Memorial Wall On Display
The Vietnam War Memorial Wall replica is on display in Orlando, Florida. The designer, Maya Lin also designed a newspaper recycling plant for the South Bronx in NYC. Unfortunately politics and the events of 9/11/01 stopped the discussion of what would have been a great "green" project in the currently returning Bronx ecology, i.e., herring are swimming again and a beaver built a lodge in the Bronx River, cleaned every year, and other signs of the what some might consider once the "curse" of the "Official Borough Flower" once the Sumatra corpse flower, has been changed to the "day lily" in 2000. Probably a result of it’s popularity at the Bronx Botanical Gardens back at the end of the 19th century?
