Material : Bronze Medallions

Within the Thomas Paine Park in lower Manhattan rests the historic Foley Square. Renovated and redesigned in the 1990s, architect R.G. Roesch laid five large bronze medallions (each seven feet in diameter) into the ground throughout the park, designed by Rebecca Darr and fabricated by Gregg Lefevre. The Foley Medallions were dedicated in 2000.

Five - 7' diameter bronze medallions are set in a two-block long granite paving pattern, connecting the different parts of Foley Square. Each medallion traces a distinct period in the history of Collect Pond, Five Points, and the area around the Square, from its use as a Native American camp, through its time as a slave burial ground, to its present function as a civic center.
