The site pays tribute to the nearly 3,000 people who were killed in the terror attacks at the World Trade Center, near Shanksville, PA and at the Pentagon as well as the six people killed in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. It features twin reflecting pools and the largest manmade waterfalls in North America situated on the footprints of where the Twin Towers once stood.
