The Lens: Viewing the 9/11 Memorial

Staff photographer Amy Dreher snaps a lot of pictures at the World Trade Center site, documenting the construction progress of the 9/11 Memorial. Amy also trains her lens on the smaller pieces that may be overlooked with a project of this magnitude. Through “The Lens: Viewing the 9/11 Memorial,” readers of The MEMO blog can share some of the unique vantage points captured by Amy.

A sight to see. A group recently huddles in Zuccotti Park near the World Trade Center, where the 9/11 Memorial is being completed. In view, looming above the city streets, is the iron skeletal structure that is to be Tower 4, a private project funded by Silverstein Properties.
