The Lens: Capturing Life and Events at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum is a photography series devoted to documenting moments big and small that unfold at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum.

The View: A class of approximately 477 New York City Police Department recruits visited the 9/11 Memorial & Museum Tuesday morning to honor and remember the members of the NYPD who sacrificed their lives on September 11. The recruits marched in formation around the South Pool, laid a wreath where the names of the NYPD members are memorialized and were welcomed in a ceremony in the 9/11 Memorial Museum's Foundation Hall.
