The Memorial is a national tribute of remembrance and honor to the 2,983 people killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993. It opened on September 11th, 2011. I visited on September 19th, 2011.
The two fountains at the memorial site are surrounded by granite borders that contain the names of all those who were killed in both terror attacks at the site. Together they make up the nation's largest manmade waterfalls, and are at the heart of the design of the memorial, called Reflecting Absence.
