Yesterday, New Yorkers, along with the rest of the world, honored the memory of those individuals who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. Shackman Associates New York pays tribute to the enduring spirit of their memory, and the families who lost their loved ones. September 11th is a part of the continuing story of New York, and one that will be memorialized in "Reflecting Absence," currently being constructed at Ground Zero in lower Manhattan.
The jury statement from the memorial competition calls the memorial a "powerful, yet simple articulation of the footprints of the Twin Towers...It is a memorial that expresses both the incalculable loss of life and its consoling renewal, a place where all of us come together to remember from generation to generation."
