The National September 11 Memorial is a tribute of remembrance and honor to the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center site, near Shanksville, Pa., and at the Pentagon, as well as the six people killed in the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993.
The Memorial’s twin reflecting pools are each nearly an acre in size and feature the largest manmade waterfalls in the North America. The pools sit within the footprints where the Twin Towers once stood.
Hear from Polytechnic Alumnus Konstantinos "Gus" Maimis '84CE, Project Executive for the National September 11 Memorial during this dynamic presentation about the memorial, it's construction, and the impact of the project on Lower Manhattan.
