On Earth Day, we reflect on the importance of sustainability and protecting our environment. Designed to conserve energy, water and other resources, the 9/11 Memorial is one of the most sustainable, green plazas ever constructed. Rainwater is collected below the plaza surface and supplies water for nearly 400 trees and vegetation. [ 911memorial.io Link ]

The Twin Towers were one of the most photographed landmarks in New York City. Just days before September 11, while showing a friend from out of town around her city, Heidi Mount purchased this postcard from a gift shop in Midtown. It is now part of the 9/11 Memorial Museum Collection.

Gift of Heidi Mount in memory of all who lost their lives on 9/11.
