911 Memorial -Joe04
Our mission the second morning was to take the subway to Ground Zero and visit the 911 Memorial. We had timed tickets we reserved online a couple weeks before. The memorial opened this past September, the 10th anniversary of the attacks. Everyone has to pass thru airport type security to enter the memorial and there was a definite security presence throughout the memorial. The memorial currently consists of the two pools surrounded with panels containing the names of all those who were lost. The grounds consisted of rows of tree lined walkways. We spotted the "Survivor Tree" which carries an amazing story unto itself. A museum is under construction.
