Memorial Glade Dedication

Memorial Glade Dedication

Plans are underway for the development of a permanent dedication at the 9/11 Memorial that will honor the ongoing sacrifice of rescue, recovery and relief workers; survivors; and members of the broader lower Manhattan community who are sick or have died from exposure caused by toxins at the World Trade Center site in the aftermath of 9/11. It will also recognize the courage, selflessness and perseverance of all 9/11 rescue, recovery and relief workers.

The dedication will be located on the clearing in what is known as the Memorial Glade. This meaningful location on the Memorial plaza will mark the historical placement of one of the construction ramps used during the recovery period to remove debris and establish a pathway for rebuilding.

The 9/11 Memorial & Museum is leading in the planning, design and development of the dedication with the Memorial’s architects, Michael Arad and Peter Walker. New York State, through its affiliates, and Bloomberg Philanthropies will provide support and funding for its development.

The project is currently in the design phase. This page will be updated with more information as it becomes available.
