New York Daily News readers may remember an insert last September, “9/11: Milestones to Recovery,” featuring the work of award-winning Daily News photographer Susan Watts. Intended to celebrate the resilience of lower Manhattan in the face of destruction and trauma, the feature showcased ordinary New Yorkers coping rebuilding their lives in the years since the attacks.

To bring these images closer to the public, the Alliance for Downtown New York enlisted the help of Duggal Visual Solutions to make Watts’ work a public exhibition in Battery Park. Thirty of the photos have been blown up to 4×6-foot images on plexiglass using a special new imaging technology developed by Duggal, which takes advantage of natural light to give the images a translucent, three-dimensional feeling.
