I really like how they look.
Each pool is 1-acre and together they are intended to symbolize the loss of life and the physical void left by the terrorist attacks. The sound of the water falling is supposed to drown out the sounds of the city, making the site a contemplative sanctuary (courtesy of wiki).[/quote]
I’ve checked it out several times and the memorial is beautiful, and very sobering.
I do, however, think a more fitting course of action would’ve been to have this memorial at the site of one of the other buildings destroyed and rebuilt the twin towers bigger, stronger, and better.
I believe this fits better with the ideology of NYC, which is to be the greatest city in the world.
