NEW YORK (AP) Officials say a mural chosen to cover a section of construction fencing at New York City’s ground zero will instead be displayed at a lower Manhattan park.

The mural’s design has not been made public. It was selected in a competition announced last year by the city’s Department of Transportation and The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

A Port Authority spokesman said Jan. 8 that none of the submissions were ultimately considered extraordinary enough to be installed on the World Trade Center fence. The city agency said the mural will be mounted at Louise Nevelson Plaza sometime in spring.

The mural was designed by the architecture firm Sage and Coombe. The firm’s principals did not respond to messages seeking comment.
