The 9/11 Memorial in New York City

9/11 Memorial

One of the highlights of my visit to New York City last week was spending a few hours at the 9/11 Memorial with my good friend Cathy. The memorial opened last year on the 10th anniversary of those tragic events that took place on a late summer day in the USA.

South Tower

As you may have heard, a water feature was designed and constructed on the imprint of the two World Trade Center towers.  Cathy and I walked around each of these stopping to look at some of the thousands of names that were inscribed on the memorial.  The water feature is quite impressive and a fitting tribute to the people that died here.

I look forward to returning to the 9/11 Memorial after the museum is completed in September 2012. In addition, it will be great to visit 1 World Trade Center once it is completed.

Note that you must obtain a timed entry pass in advance to visit the memorial.  Click here for more information.
