WTC Memorial



Few man made creations ever live up to their expectations, but the 9/11 Memorial at the World Trade Center is one of the few that do just that. Beautiful, contemplative, a most fitting (if not stunning) piece of architecture that will serve to honor and remember those needlessly sacrificed in that most tragic of events. Everything about it works as it should: the names, the water, the sound, the size, shape, proportions and multilevel platforms make for a most moving experience.

I wish the same could be said for the armored narwhal looking behemoth being built beside it.

I think that New york should be proper proud that they have given over what must be one of the most expensive bits of land in the world to be a memorial. In this day and age I think it's astonishing.
