The 9/11 Memorial
As the tenth anniversary of September 11 approaches, so does the opening date of this monument. The large landmark, located within the revamped World Trade Center site, is made up of two parts. The memorial itself features two gigantic pools that were built in the footprints of the Twin Towers; each one includes a waterfall and is surrounded by bronze plaques inscribed with the victims' names from the 1993 and 2001 terrorist attacks. Though the site officially opens on September 11, only victims' families will be allowed there on the exact anniversary. The general public can visit beginning September 12, but you'll need to register in advance for a free visitor pass. The museum, meanwhile, is scheduled to open on September 11, 2012; the structure will incorporate elements from the original World Trade Center site, including two steel tridents from the iconic buildings (which will be placed in the atrium), and the Survivor's Stairway, which will be on view next to a stairwell within the museum.
