One of the city’s oldest public squares has been rebuilt. Hanover Square, named in 1714 for King George I, Elector of Hanover, was redesigned by the British Memorial Garden Trust to commemorate the lives of 67 Britons who died in New York on September 11, 2001. The new park space features hand-carved stone from Scotland, plantings from Prince Charles’s estate, and iron bollards from London.
