Brooklyn 9-11 Memorial Monument (finalist)
69th Street Pier Bay Ridge, Brooklyn
Brooklyn Remembers, Inc.
Brooklyn Arts Council
56' long x 8' aluminum screen
The proposed memorial would be an 8 by 56 foot decorative aluminum screen containing plaques of the names of all 283 Brooklyn victims of the September 11th World Trade Center attack. It would be a great monument to reflect the enormity and historical importance of the lives and property lost. It would be a living testament for generations to come. Set in the magnificent New York harbor against the downtown Manhattan skyline the monument would invoke distinct feelings of loss, beauty, and hope. The memorial’s size and the sheer number of victim's names would convey the breadth and impact of the attack. The decorative screen would suggest the World Trade Center's design and materials. Downtown Manhattan would clearly be visible through the reflective filigree pattern. Viewers’ focal points would shift back and forth between the name plaques and the downtown skyline. The monument would be a powerful destination to mourn and pay tribute.
