New Yorkers captured photos of the annual Tribute in Light memorial, representing the lives lost in the September 11 terror attacks
In the days leading up to the 13th anniversary of 9/11, New York City’s skyline was once again illuminated by the Tribute in Light, a memorial that pays tribute to the individuals lost in the 2001 terror attacks on the World Trade Center by shining beams of light to the sky to represent the twin towers. The towers of light first appeared on 11 March 2002, and have been recreated annually on September 11 by the Municipal Art Society of New York City.
The display is created with 88 7,000-watt xenon lights and is visible from up to 60 miles away. As the towers of light flickered on again this year, spectators shared pictures from different vantage points throughout the city and beyond.
