World Trade Center Tribute In Light Seen Tonight From Roosevelt Island And The Story Behind Its Creation

Reported last September 12:

... According to the Municipal Arts Society (MAS), the Tribute In Light:
is one of the most powerful and healing works of public art ever produced. The majestic blue twin beams are presented annually by MAS, shining from dusk on September 11, through dawn the next day. Visible within a sixty-mile radius on a clear night, Tribute has become a world-renowned icon of remembrance, honoring those who were lost, as well as those who worked so hard to get our city through that terrible trial....
Here's the Tribute In Light as seen from a Roosevelt Island rooftop tonight



Roosevelt Island resident and photographer Duc Le took this great photo of the Tribute Of Light in 2008.



and this one today.


Here's the story behind the creation of the Tribute In Light.

I always thought the Tribute In Lights was the most fitting and appropriate memorial to the attack on September 11.
