"IN MEMORY of the delivery boys who died," reads the sign on this shrine to bicycle messengers on Lower Broadway near Ground Zero. The shrine memorializes the bicycle that was supposed to have belonged to a man delivering pizza in the twin towers on September 11 who parked his bike, went upstairs to make the delivery, and never came back.
