Tribute In Light
September 11, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - September 12, 2016 @ 6:30 am
Since September 11, 2002, lower Manhattan has been illuminated annually in remembrance of
the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers. 88 bulbs, with 7,000 watts apiece, cluster within two 48-foot squares echoing the footprints of the towers; in the darkest hours of the night, the beams reach four miles into the sky and can be seen from up to 60 miles away, creating a moving memorial that transcends time and space. Visible from virtually anywhere in New York, the Tribute in Light today takes its place beside the new One World Trade, beautifully positioning reflection and reverence alongside renewal.
