Description:
Zuccotti Park, formerly called Liberty Plaza Park, is a privately-owned public park in Lower Manhattan in New York City, located between Broadway and Church streets and Liberty and Cedar Streets. The park's northwest corner is across the street from the World Trade Center site. The park is owned by Brookfield Properties.

The park was created in the late 1960s. It was a popular site, given its location among the skyscrapers of the Financial District which otherwise lacks such areas. Following the September 11th attacks in 2001, it was covered with debris. As part of the Lower Manhattan rebuilding efforts, the park has undergone a complete overhaul.

On June 1, 2006, the park reopened after an $8 million renovation designed by Cooper, Robertson & Partners. It was renamed Zuccotti Park in honor of John Zuccotti, the chairman of Brookfield Properties, which used private money to renovate the park. Currently, the park has a wide variety of trees, granite sidewalks, tables and seats, as well as lights built into the ground, which illuminate the area. The park is also home to two sculptures: a 70-foot-tall red steel sculpture Joie de Vivre by Mark di Suvero and Double Check, a bronze businessman sitting on a bench, by John Seward Johnson II.
