Tribute In Light

Today we commemorate the loss of 3,000 lives sixteen years ago.

The Tribute in Light is an art installation of 88 searchlights placed next to the site of the World Trade Center to create two vertical columns of light to represent the Twin Towers in remembrance of the September 11 attacks. The lights reach up to four miles in the sky and echo the shape and orientation of the towers.

The lights will be turned on at dusk and remain glowing until dawn. It has become an iconic symbol that not only honors those killed but celebrates the unbreakable spirit of the people of our beautiful city.

The Memorial Plaza will be open to the public from 3 p.m. until midnight for viewing the Tribute in Light. But you don’t have to be right there to see it; the installation can also be viewed from a 60-mile radius around lower Manhattan.

Love and light, friends.
