Perhaps the starkest reminders are the refrigerated trucks that now appear outside the city’s hospitals. In St. Vincent’s Triangle last week, across from where the now defunct St. Vincent’s Hospital treated victims of Sept. 11 and where the New York City AIDS Memorial casts triangular shadows in the afternoon light, a man and woman walked by. They stopped when they noticed the white trailer parked along West 12th Street, outside Lenox Health hospital.
They both looked at the truck and the man said, “It’s a morgue.”
The project originated during a brainstorming session with Jeffrey Furticella, a Metro photo editor, who in early May told me about eight audio tracks produced by the New York Public Library and Mother New York in a collaborative album, “Missing Sounds of New York.” Mr. Furticella wondered, was there some way we could photograph them?
