September 11 Memorial to Be Open on 9/11

02 September, 2014

-By Erinn Waldo



The September 11 memorial plaza will be open the evening of the attack’s anniversary, marking the first time the general public will be able to visit ground zero on the commemoration date.

While the plaza will be closed during the remembrance ceremony and most of the day, it will open from 6 p.m. to midnight to the general public. Security measures will be in place for these public hours, according to museum officials, although details were not disclosed.

Since opening in May, public access has been allowed during days and evenings at the plaza. The night hours will feature the Tribute in Light, which first appeared six months after the attacks on March 11, 2002. Formed from 88 bulbs positioned into two squares, the light memorial echoes the Twin Towers and reaches four miles skyward.

A private anniversary ceremony will be held on the plaza in the morning and will include a reading of the names of the nearly 3,000 people killed in New York in the 2001 attacks, as well as recognizing the six people killed in the 1993 trade center bombing.
