As you explore the stunning, expressive memorial, you’ll see nearly 3,000 names of those fallen inscribed on bronze parapets surrounding the twin Memorial pools. Each of the Memorial’s twin reflecting pools are nearly an acre in size, and feature the largest man-made waterfalls in North America. The Memorial commemorates the largest loss of life resulting from a foreign attack on US soil, and the greatest single loss of rescue personnel in American history. Standing in the imprint of where these glorious towers once stood is an extremely emotional experience.
