The Lens: Capturing Life and Events at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum is a photography series devoted to documenting moments big and small that unfold at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum.

The View: The Twin Towers under construction from the vantage point of the Staten Island Ferry. Construction on both the 110-story buildings began in 1966. They were officially dedicated in 1973. The more than 1,300-feet-tall towers were the tallest buildings in New York City, and for a brief period, they were the tallest buildings in the world.
