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. 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.

Home of the brave:  From left to right, 9/11 Memorial President Joe Daniels yesterday led a tour of the memorial with Army Chief of Staff Gen. Raymond T. Odierno and New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly. Others on the tour included Army Vice Chief of Staff Gen. Lloyd J. Austin III, Army Gen. James D. Thurman, Army Gen. Ann E. Dunwoody, Army Gen. Robert W. Cone and other Army officers.
