Short Video of the September 11th Tribute in Light

Watch the 9/11 tribute to the former Twin Towers, as viewed from below the Battery Parking Garage:

Tribute in Light was first presented on March 11, 2002, six months after the attacks, and MAS has presented it annually since. Comprising eighty-eight 7,000-watt xenon light bulbs positioned into two 48-foot squares that echo the shape and orientation of the Twin Towers, Tribute in Light is assembled each year on a roof near the World Trade Center site. The illuminated memorial reaches 4 miles into the sky and is the strongest shaft of light ever projected from earth into the night sky. – Municipal Art Society of New York

Please consider making a contribution to MAS to ensure that Tribute in Light can continue year after year.
