Since the first anniversary of 9/11, the “towers of light” have marked the occasion, beaming skyward from the actual footprints where the World Trade towers stood.
Almost unheralded among all the pomp, circumstance and political photo ops, they are perhaps the most beloved symbols of the day for those of us who were here. Silent, wordless reminders of the extraordinary shock, followed by the extraordinary sense of human community that flowed through the city that day and in the smoldering weeks that followed. This photo was taken by a friend and photographer Jenny Ross, from the roof of her Brooklyn apartment building.
