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

The View: The 9/11 Memorial & Museum may be temporarily closed, but the Survivor Tree remains a symbol of growth and resilience. Spring only just sprung, and the Survivor Tree is already starting to bud. Out of the more than 400 trees on the 9/11 Memorial, the leaves of the Survivor Tree are the first to bloom and last to turn colors in the fall.
