New York City — Tribute in Light
The Tribute in Light was a temporary art installation of 88 searchlights placed next to the site of the World Trade Center from March 11 to April 14, 2002 to create two vertical columns of light in remembrance of the September 11, 2001 attacks. The twin beams of light recreate a ghostly image of the Twin Towers. The tribute was launched again in 2003, to mark the second anniversary of the attack, and has been done every year since on September 11, to mark the anniversary.
For the 10th Anniversary of 9/11, the Tribute in Lights will be illuminated from dusk on September 11, 2011 until dawn on September 12, 2011.
The Tribute in Light is best viewed from the waterfront outside of Manhattan, including Jersey City, the Brooklyn Bridge Promenade and Gantry Plaza State Park, though the Tribute in Light can be seen from many places in and around New York City. The beams of light can reportedly be seen from over 60 miles away.
