Photo by myself at the World Trade Center Memorial.
While downtown, I had to stop by the World Trade Center Memorial, which is open to the public year-round. Above, the reflecting pool by the south tower footprint. Surrounding the water are bronze plaques, laser cut with the victims' names.
It was very hot, and the grounds were full of people. I learned that the grounds keepers place a white rose by each person's name on his or her birthday.
There were a few roses there that day. It was a very quiet and touching gesture.
