Mulry Square

Currently owned by the NYC Metropolitan Transit Authority, Mulry Square is a triangular parking lot at the southwest corner of Greenwich Avenue and Seventh Avenue South which was once thought to be [1] the site of a wedge-shaped diner that was the inspiration for Edward Hopper's famous painting Nighthawks. The parking lot's fencing supports Tiles for America, a September 11 memorial consisting of some 6,000 tiles created across the country.

Named after Thomas M. Mulry founder of the Emigrant Savings Bank and devoted Vincentian.
