NYC: National September 11th Memorial

The National September 11 Memorial is a tribute of remembrance and honor to the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center site, near Shanksville, Pa., and at the Pentagon, as well as the six people killed in the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993.

The Memorial consists of enormous twin reflecting pools situated in the foundations of where the Twin Towers formerly stood. Each pool is nearly an acre in size and feature the largest man-made waterfalls in North America. The perimeter of each pool is bordered with bronze panels bearing the inscriptions of every person who died in the 1993 and 2001 attacks. Names of those lost from the World Trade Center North, Flight 11 and the attack on February 26, 1993 can be located at the North Pool while the names of those lost from the Word Trade Center South, First Responders, Flight 175, Flight 77, Flight 93 and the Pentagon can be found along the South Pool. At each pool water flows from below the name panels down the walls into the basin of each pool where it continues to run down into a smaller rectangular pool that drops off into the center of each basin.
