‘Kobe and Gigi Bryant Park’ Makeshift Memorial in the Subway
The subway tributes to fallen basketball all-star Kobe Bryant continue apace. Monday saw the arrival of “Kobe” tapes above a Bryant Park station marker.
(Similar subway nods included Aretha Franklin following her death in 2018.)
Yesterday afternoon, the gentleman in this photo taped a bouquet of flowers to one of the load-bearing columns in the station, along with “Kobe and Gigi.” It’s a makeshift memorial to the basketball player and his thirteen-year-old daughter, Gianna, both of whom died in a helicopter crash Sunday morning.
