Now the site has a new building, a museum, and a memorial or two. The new building is mighty spiffy. I didn't go into the museum since the timing didn't work for me. But I did walk around the sites of what used to be the North and South Towers:
|North Tower Memorial|
|South Tower Memorial|
The memorials have the names of the those who died in the attacks. Here, people had put a flower and a flag to mark a few names, I guess.
I was surprised to learn as I was walking to the train station that Company 10 is literally on the outskirts of the WTC area. I cannot imagine what it must be like to work in a place that is so filled with memories.
One twitter follower said that she didn't like the memorial because it is unsettling. And I liked it for exactly that reason--the design basically is of two wounds that have not closed and will not close. NY has moved on, but will always remember, as should we all.
