Staff photographer Amy Dreher snaps a lot of pictures at the World Trade Center site, documenting the construction progress. 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.

Blossoms: Though the rest of New York City began the day shrouded in fog, the Survivor Tree at the 9/11 Memorial is in full bloom. The callery pear tree now stands at 30-feet tall and is the first tree on the memorial plaza showing signs of spring.
