9/11 Memorial

It was very moving to visit the 9/11 Memorial.

Last time I was in NYC, the site was just a hole surrounded by hoardings. I think the Memorial design chosen is very fitting and the site feels like a peaceful little haven in the middle of a busy and bustling city.

We were just slightly too early for the museum but the first new World Trade Center Building had just been topped off. There was some controversy over its height (all to do with whether the mast on top is a spire or antenna) but the Council on Tall Buildings confirmed it is a spire and at a symbolic 1776 feet, 1 WTC  is the tallest building in North America.
