New York’s 9/11 Memorial to Open on September 12th


One of Two Fountains at the Memorial Site

According to the Google Blog post for today, NYC’s 9/11 Memorial opens officially to the public tomorrow, September 12, 2011, after the dedication ceremony taking place this morning at the site. Even though ground zero is only about a ten-minute walk for me from the office of my day gig, I’ve probably walked by it twice in ten years, because it’s always seemed disrespectful to gawk at the site of such a tragedy. But I’m going to make an effort to walk over there in the next couple of weeks and check it out, because it looks like it’s pretty cool and a fitting memorial to the events of that day, if there could be such a thing. For anyone interested in coming in from out of town to see the Memorial, there’s a fairly comprehensive FAQ located at This Link.
