Inside the Tribute in Light

It's been five years since I was once again fortunate (2010 and also 1985 pictures here)  to be able to visit my friends at the moving and beautiful Tribute in Light here in New York on September 11.  Here's a few photos and a video of the lights being turned on after one of the times they turned the lights off to disperse migrating birds who end up circling in the lights:
