As they usually do, they were testing the lights in preparation for 9/11. In years past I understood why they had the tribute in lights at the parking garage but I don't fully understand why not at the memorial this year. I think it would be stunning to have the lights at the exact footprints of the old towers. It may be a safety/territory thing (PANY/NJ versus Municipal Arts Society of New York).
Of course, I am always looking out for great private rooftops or unique public locations and if anyone knows of any please contact me via flickrmail or rbudhuphotos [at] gmail.com.
