Video of the 9/11 Memorial in New York City on August 3, 2012, located at the site of the former World Trade Center complex in lower Manhattan, occupies approximately half of the 16-acre site. The 9/11 Memorial features two enormous waterfalls and reflecting pools, each about an acre in size, set within the footprints of the twin towers. The names of the nearly 3,000 victims of the September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993 terrorist attacks are inscribed on bronze panels lining the two pools. Waterfalls cascade down all four sides of each pool, creating a special place for remembrance and reflection. The waterfalls themselves representing the endless tears shed for all the victims. The surrounding plaza is filled with oak trees and a “callery pear” known as the Survivor Tree, which was nursed back to health after surviving the 9/11 attacks. Also included is what the Freedom Tower, still under construction, looked like on that day.
