New Orleans, Louisiana: Eerie Deepwater Horizon Memorial

Eleven lifelike men made of thousands of rusty welded steel disks stand in a circle in a street median. They're unidentified, but this is the memorial to the eleven oil workers who died when the Deepwater Horizon drilling platform blew up in April 2010.

Just east of the French Quarter. In the median of Elysian Fields Ave., just north of its intersection with Dauphine St.

Eerie Deepwater Horizon Memorial

Eerie is a great description. One minute you are in the heart of the French Quarter and suddenly you turn the corner to see a beautiful memorial smack dab in the center of a busy corridor.
