Remembering 9/11 with a #tributeinlight

You can find more photos and videos from the 9/11 memorial by visiting the Tribute in Light location page and by navigating to the #tributeinlight hashtag.

For the past eleven years, New York City has paid homage to the tragedies of September 11, 2001, with Tribute in Light, two powerful beams of light projected upwards as part of the city skyline. The shape and placement of the installation echo the fallen Twin Towers and honor the victims of the 9/11 attacks as well as the many who worked as part of the relief efforts.

Originally conceived just days after the attack as a “Project for the Immediate Reconstruction of Manhattan’s Skyline,” Tribute in Light is made up of 88 7,000-watt lightbulbs that create the strongest beams of light ever projected from Earth. The tribute is visible from up to 60 miles (95.6 km) away from its base near the World Trade Center site.
