9/11: A tribute in light

Recent and archive images of The Tribute in Light as it illuminates the sky over New York's lower Manhattan skyline. The Tribute in Light is an art installation near the site of the World Trade Center in remembrance of the September 11 (9/11) attacks in 2001.

Eleven years after the Sept 11, 2001, attacks, New Yorkers will mark the anniversary on Tuesday against a backdrop of health concerns for emergency workers and a feud over financing that has stopped construction of the US$1 billion (S$1.2 billion) Ground Zero museum.

While notable progress on redevelopment of the World Trade Center has been made since early disputes over financial, design and security issues, the project remains hobbled by political battles and billions of dollars in cost overruns.
