The original painting was changed in 2012 but its circumferential text remains the same:
COME LET US BE IN BEAUTY TOGETHER CIRCLED BY TREES AS THE RIVER FLOWS.
The Junior League of New York City generously donated the paint.

Learning about, making labyrinths, and walking together with Grand Street Settlement participants.
The labyrinth disappeared in 2008 when it was scheduled to be demolished. That did not happen but construction materials were placed over it until 2010 when it surfaced again. A friend cycling by phoned to tell me and I went to see if I could get permission to repaint it. Permission granted, I refreshed the painting.
