Last month, we led the country in marking the 20th anniversary of the day that changed the world forever. The tremendous outpouring of love and support we saw from around the globe underscored the fact that even in the face of unfathomable adversity, our capacity for hope and resilience will unite and carry us through.
At the Memorial
Dignitaries and elected officials joined 8,500 family members and guests for the morning ceremony, where Bruce Springsteen, Chris Jackson, Kelli O’Hara, and the Young People’s Chorus all performed. Throughout the day, more than 61,000 individuals visited the Memorial to pay their respects and view the annual public art installation “Tribute in Light.”
Evening of September 11
We proudly partnered with NYC & Company and buildings and landmarks across the city and state on the “Tribute in Lights” initiative, an extension of the annual installation. More than 50 locations across the city and state lit their facades in blue, a simple but powerful gesture of collective remembrance that illuminated local skylines the night of the 11th. Iconic participants included One World Trade Center, the Empire State Building, Bloomberg L.P., Lincoln Center, the New-York Historical Society, City Hall, Bloomingdale’s, New York Hall of Science, Niagara Falls, the Goethals Bridge, the Bayonne Bridge, JFK Air Traffic Control Tower, the Bronx Terminal Market, and the Times Square Ball.
