Take a Break Tuesday-WTC Memorial

This summer I was fortunate enough to be able to visit the WTC memorial in NYC. The memorial is beautiful and I really liked the way they assigned times for you to visit so that you didn't have to spend all day in line. This was especially helpful when we were there because we were trying to see the whole city in one day!

In honor of today being 9-11 I wanted to share some of the pics from the memorial.

This is the North Pool which has names from WTC North, Flight 11, and Feb. 26, 1993. There are 400 trees within the memorial plaza which are such a great thing to see in NYC. I am sure they will be beautiful this fall. 

This is the south pool which has all of the names from WTC South, First Responders, Flight 175, Flight 93, the Pentagon, and Flight 77. 

This is one of the towers they are rebuilding. I think it is Tower 1. 

Here is a view from across the river in NJ. You can see the cranes and Tower 1 pictured above. Tower 1 is huge!

The memorial has a great website that specifically features an area for teachers

It is a beautiful place for what actually occured there. There is a calm and quiet even with all the city noise and construction around it. My husband works on the rebuilding of Tower 1 and he takes great pride in all they have accomplished and will accomplish in the next couple of months.
