Evening of September 11
Our annual public art installation Tribute in Light illuminated the foggy sky from dusk til dawn. Viewable within a 60-mile radius of lower Manhattan, the twin beams of blue light honor those killed and symbolize the city's collective resilience. The presentation of Tribute in Light is made possible in part by support of the Anheuser-Busch Foundation.
As an extension of Tribute in Light, we once again partnered with NYC & Company and buildings throughout the city who lit up their facades and rooftops in sky blue. Participants on the 21st anniversary included the Empire State Building, Bloomberg L.P., the World Trade Center Performing Arts Center, One World Trade Center, The Oculus, Brookfield Place, New York City Hall, RXR Realty buildings, the Helmsley Building, the Bank of America Tower, Barclays Bank U.S. Headquarters, One Vanderbilt, Lincoln Center, Museum of the City of New York, Queens Museum, NY Hall of Science, Queens Borough Hall, Niagara Falls, MTA Long Island Railroad East End Gateway at Penn Station, the H.
