After nearly a decade of planning, arguments, and heated discussions, the National 9/11 Memorial  has officially opened to the public in New York City. Designed by architect Michael Arad, the memorial is a sensitive, respectful complex in the heart of the new World Trade Center  site. Two vast reflecting pools, located in the exact footprints of the Twin Towers, are the focus of the site. Standing at the edge of the large voids, with the waterfalls drowning out the sounds from the surrounding construction sites, one easily remembers the magnitude of the loss we experienced that day. Visitor passes  to the memorial are booked through the end of October, but through our exclusive photo gallery , you can view the memorial and see its graceful elegance.
