This one is more for the ladies, although some of the guys might know...

Sex and the City with Sarah Jessica Parker is based in New York. Sarah Jessica Parker's character "Carrie" loves shoes and in particular Manolo Blahnik shoes. This high end shoe store has a boutique in Manhattan - what is the address of Manolo Blahnik, Manhattan, New York?

I am made up of 14 individual panels brazed together. I am an artwork weighing in at over 3 tons. I am 56 feet long, and 6 feet high. I memorialize 343, but pay tribute to all.

What am I, and where am I mounted?

That's correct! It's the FDNY MEMORIAL WALL on the side of "Ten House"
That FD station was partially damaged on 9/11, was rebuilt and holds the memorial on it's sidewall. A fitting tribute, in a fitting place.

The next question is yours!
