Read NewsCore's Jan Cawley's story about 9/11 tributes of "holiday greens, wreaths, red berries and bows" appearing at the 9/11 Memorial.

The memorial encourages visitors to leave tributes and some are added to the 9/11 Memorial Museum collection, curators said. "Each item is on site for a day, then photographed, collected and archived, with some of the non-perishable items destined for rotating exhibits," according to the report.
