We Remember: 9-11 at 16 Years


September 10, 2017
9/11 Tribute In Light, New York City

On Monday, the nation marks the 16th anniversary of the September 11th terror attacks with tributes and remembrances.

Nowhere else in the country is the effect of 9-11 felt more than at what we call 'ground zero' - the location of the World Trade Center twin towers in lower Manhattan - now, the location of the National 9-11 Museum and Memorial.

Each year on the anniversary of the attacks, the Tribute In Light can be seen in New York City - twin beams of light reaching 4 miles into the sky to commemorate those lost, not only in New York, but at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. and in Pennsylvania, where United flight 93 crashed.

For more about the 9-11 Memorial & Museum, you can visit here.

Today, adjacent to the 9-11 Museum and Memorial, stands Freedom Tower.  Opened in 2014, and standing as a shining beacon for the new Downtown, One World Trade Center is safe, sustainable, and artistically dynamic. Soaring to a symbolic 1,776 feet — it is the Western Hemisphere’s tallest building.
