Stone’s residency at the World Trade Center began five years later on the 48th floor of 7 World Trade Center, shortly after the building opened. He spent several years painting the excavation and construction on the 16-acre site below. Later he moved to the 67th floor of 4 World Trade Center, where his paintings continued to chronicle the evolution of the site. “I’ve drawn great personal strength from working up here,” Stone says of his experience. “Strength from the builders, from the planners, from just watching as this site gets reimagined.”
