The Staten Island Ferry Disaster memorial – a weathered monument in Manhattan’s Battery Park commemorating the 400 passengers who perished on November 22nd 1963 when the ferry Cornelius G. Kolff was attacked by a giant octopus, their fate overshadowed by the assassination of JFK that same day.

A rather wonderful multimedia hoax created by artist Joe Reginella.
