National September 11th Memorial In Manhattan Opens To The Public [Video]
The National September 11th Memorial in Manhattan opened to the public for the first time yesterday. Thousands of people visited the memorial which stands in the footprints of the World Trade Center towers. The memorial also honors those lost in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. The names are inscribed in bronze panels that frame the two acre-sized pools. Mayor Bloomberg also asked that the site no longer be referred to as ‘Ground Zero’. The emotional opening can be seen below.
