New York, NY

The anniversary of 9/11 in New York City will be marked at Ground Zero with four moments of silence — to observe the times when each plane hit and each tower fell, beginning at 8:46 am. St. Paul’s Chapel traditionally hosts morning bell services followed by Prayers for Peace and ringing of the Bell of Hope in remembrance of 9/11. “The Tribute in Light” is comprised of 44 7,000-watt xenon light bulbs arranged into two 48-foot squares in the shape of the twin towers. The tribute in light is located at West and Morris Streets in Lower Manhattan. Each year, the lights are lit at sunset on 9/11 and burn brightly until sunrise on September 12.
