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.

More than a tour: Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who chairs the 9/11 Memorial's board of directors, 9/11 Memorial Museum Director Alice Greenwald and 9/11 Memorial President Joe Daniels recently led a tour of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum at the World Trade Center site. The three toured the site with members of the memorial and museum's board of directors, which is comprised of 9/11 family members.
