I visited the September 11 Memorial for the first time this week. The twin reflecting pools are each nearly an acre in size and feature the largest manmade waterfalls in North America. The pools sit where the Twin Towers once stood, and the names of every person who died in the 2001 and 1993 attacks are inscribed in bronze panels edging the pools (the picture above shows the names of my good friend's father and uncle). The Memorial, in the shadow of the shimmering One World Trade Center, is quite compelling. The Museum is next on my list.
