This pin commemorates the visit of Pope Francis to New York City in September 2015. Crowds gathered around Columbus Circle, where this pin was purchased from a street vendor, and along Central Park West and South, hoping to spot the Catholic leader riding in his "popemobile" during his procession though Central Park.
