    The 911/World Trade Center memorial called The Rising. The structure is built out of 109 steel rods. The rods symbolize the 109 people who died on September 11, 2001 that lived in Westchester County, NY. I took these pictures at the dam where the memorial is located.

    I agree! They are fantastic!
    Can you imagine how long it took to build that structure?! And the work involved?

    Thanks everyone! I actually think it was built rather quickly. I am not totally sure how long it took them to build, but it says it was put there at the dam on September 11th 2006. I remember there being a website just for this but I can't find it now.

    If you stare at the last one enough it almost looks like its moving. Just stare in the center and it kind of vibrates!
