Tribute in Light

  • September 11 to September 12
  • Dusk until Dawn
  • Lower Manhattan
In this nighttime photograph, the South Pool of the 9/11 Memorial is shown in the foreground as the twin beams of the Tribute in Light shine over the buildings of lower Manhattan.

Tribute in Light is a commemorative public art installation first presented six months after 9/11 and then every year thereafter, from dusk to dawn, on the night of September 11. It has become an iconic symbol that both honors those killed and celebrates the unbreakable spirit of New York.
