The National September 11 Memorial and Museum, also known as the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, in New York is intended to commemorate the approximately 3000 victims of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993. It is located on the site of the former World Trade Center, today also known as Ground Zero.

9/11 Memorial

Where the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center used to be, there are now two large basins with the names of the people who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks milled into their copper frames. In the middle of the water surface, the water falls nine metres deep into the ground. This makes the 9/11 Memorial the largest man-made waterfall in the USA.
