New York, NY 9/11 Memorial

The 9/11 Memorial was designed by Michael Arad in consultation with architect Peter Walker. It's titled "Reflecting Absence" and has two large waterfall pools in the locations of the two towers of the old World Trade Center. The two waterfalls together are the largest man-made waterfalls in the country with 26,000 gallons a minute pouring over the 30-foot deep black granite walls on each waterfall. Encircling each waterfall are the names of all of the victims of the 9/11 attack etched in bronze and backlit to be readable at night. The memorial is a spectacular tribute to those people that thought they were just going to work that Tuesday morning.
