In 2006, the United States installed a five-feet high ticker tape display across the top floor of the building which broadcast messages and quotes from Martin Luther King Jr. and other cultural figures such as the comedian George Burns, who once remarked: "How sad that all the people who would know how to run this country are driving taxis or cutting hair." The Cuban government responded by erecting the monument Monte de las Banderas, or Wall of Flags, out of one hundred fifty flags to commemorate "victims of US aggression" and to partially block the ticker. At Pioneer Works, En El Monte evokes this square with an installation of flagpoles, onto which virtual reality headsets are attached. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=352678 Pioneer Works Pioneer Works
