This September 11th will mark the 11th anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks in New York City. A memorial service is being held at the memorial plaza, to commemorate the 3,000 men, women, and children that were killed on September 11th, as well as those killed in the 1993 attacks on the World Trade Center. The memorial will serve as a physical translation of New Yorkers reflecting on and remember the lives of those who were lost ten years ago. The names of those who died will be etched into bronze panels surrounding both the waterfalls pools in the center of the plaza.
The memorial plaza will feature two large squares pools here the Twin Towers once stood, with water constantly flowing in and out of them. The plaza surrounding the pools is positioned as being one of the most eco-friendly plazas ever constructed. Below the two pools, the 9/11 Museum will be opened to honor the victims of the attack, and celebrate the lives of those who risked their lives to save others that day. The museum will preserve and display the physical remains of the site of the twin towers, house important artifacts from the period of recovery and is the place that will tell the stories of those who experienced the events that day.
