9/11 Memorial

On September 28th, 2011 we were fortunate enough to visit the recently completed 9/11 Memorial, which at that stage had only been officially open to the public for a couple of weeks. Tickets are required to visit the memorial, so I had reserved some tickets in advance, and we headed down after work. The winning design for this memorial is titled “Reflecting Absence”, and includes the two largest manmade waterfalls in New York, created in the footprints of the two fallen buildings.

A cross placed next to a name of someone lost on 9/11. These names surround the memorial.

Shot of the South Tower waterfall. The falling water creates a sound that drowns out the sounds of the city, giving you time to reflect.

This rose had been placed in the name of someone lost.

A shot from the North Tower, with a reflection of lights from behind the waterfall.

At this stage tickets are booked out a couple months in advance, however, I recommend you reserve some future tickets to visit this amazingly well thought-out memorial!

    Jumped on this site after not visiting for a while – wondering if I might see some shiny new HDR pics of Aotearoa. But no – just a big empty old echo chamber where them pics should be… :-(
