The Lens: Viewing the 9/11 Memorial


Staff photographer Amy Dreher snaps a lot of pictures at the World Trade Center site, documenting the construction progress of the 9/11 Memorial. Amy also trains her lens on the smaller pieces that may be overlooked with a project of this magnitude. Through “The Lens: Viewing the 9/11 Memorial,” readers of The MEMO blog can share some of the unique vantage points captured by Amy.

Tools of the Trade: Taking a break from the heat on a sweltering July afternoon, construction workers at the World Trade Center site rest their hardhats on a wall near the Liberty Street entrance of the highly restricted area.  The wall is not too far from the 9/11 Memorial's south pool. Tower 4, an office building privately owned by Silverstein Properties, can be seen in the distance.
