Postcards - the Staten Island September 11 Memorial

(August 13, 2004) New England Boatworks in Portsmouth, RI, have just finished building the Staten Island September 11 Memorial, which honors the 267 people from Staten Island who died in the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center.

The memorial, named "Postcards," consists of two 50-foot-high sculptures by artist Masayuki Sono that feature granite profiles (sort of "commemorative stamps") of each of the victims; the artist has designed the memorial so that on September 11 each profile will be lit in turn as the sun passes through the sky. From Staten Island the view from between the twin postcards frames Ground Zero.

The official dedication will take place on September 11, 2004.
