Look Up to the Sky on Sunday Night

The 9/11 Memorial & Museum’s annual Tribute in Light is set to honor those who lost their lives on September 11 and celebrate the unbreakable spirit of New York. The lights will be visible from a 60-mile radius around Lower Manhattan.

This September 11 in particular marks the 21st anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Center, a reminder of how such tragic events can alter the fabric of our city and everyday lives. Over the past two decades Lower Manhattan has witnessed both physical and symbolic transformations as tens of thousands of new residents have chosen to make this place their home and millions have come to visit the memorial.

Sunday night’s Tribute in Light will continue to transmit an ongoing signal for New Yorkers to persevere together. Join the community in observing the twin beams as they last from dusk until dawn.
