Tribute in Light 2009 - 8

Tribute In Light 2009-09-11

 

88 searchlights are placed next to the World Trade Center site to create two vertical columns of light. The lights are a memorial for the 2974 people killed in the September 11th 2001 attack.

 

Supposedly 2008 was the last year for this - I am happy to see that they were able to obtain additional funding so that the lights are shining this year too.

 

This year, it was raining earlier in the evening. The lights were not visible at all in DUMBO. It wasn't until much later in the night that it started to clear up a bit.
