LOWER MANHATTAN -- The flowers are in bloom along Church Street between Fulton and Vesey, but some of the petals are painted on the planters.

Street artists have been working since June to transform barriers as well as construction and pedestrian areas in the World Trade Center complex in Lower Manhattan.

Husband and wife team Chinon Maria and Sebastian Mitre have added flowers. They worked on the first section of wall earlier in the summer

A giant base of the future 2 World Trade is covered on four sides with murals.

Aj Lavilla and Savior Elmundo worked on the barriers that were initially transformed into planters and now carry a message of peace.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and with Silverstein Properties worked to create the space for the art.
