WTC Tribute Center: 100,000 Visitors

Yesterday, the WTC Tribute Center recorded its 100,000th person to enter and visit, and it was a young lady from England.

The Tribute Center was opened this past September 18th on Liberty Street, across from the World Trade Center site. It is a beautiful place to remember the World Trade Center, and more importantly, those brave souls who lost their lives there in 1993 and 2001.

The Visitor Center is attracting more than a thousand people a day. I had the honor of being asked to visit the Center before it opened, on September 11th, right after the 5th anniversary ceremonies concluded. There is one particularly poignant spot inside the Center, namely a photo gallery of literally thousands of photographs of the 9/11 victims, and I am proud that my friend Joyce is a part of it.

There was a nice article written about the 100,000th visitor, and about the Tribute Center, at Firefightingnews.com:

If you ever get the chance to go to the WTC Tribute Center, I would definitely recommend you see it. For more information about it: www.tributenyc.org.
