Thought you might want this update on the commemoration of September 11th
with a link on thoughts about rebuilding the WTC site. Again, the
restoration work done at the adjacent Battery Park City's  gardens, overseen
by ACGA board member Tessa Huxley, has been  astoundingly fine...

Marking September 11

>From early morning bagpipes to candlelight vigils, the city plans a full
of observances to mark the first anniversary of the terrorist attacks on
September 11. Mayor Michael Bloomberg yesterday announced the series of
"simple and powerful" events, including a ceremony at Ground Zero that will
begin with a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m., the time the first plane
slammed into the World Trade Center. The service will include the reading of
the names of all who died. It will end at 10:29 a.m., when the second tower
collapsed. Then, for the first time, family members of the deceased will be
led into the seven-story pit at Ground Zero. Each relative will carry a
single rose. The flowers will be gathered together to be included in
whatever permanent memorial is eventually built at the site.

Throughout the day, schools, city offices and most businesses will remain
open, with  many  planning their own observances. At dusk, heads of state
will gather in Battery Park to watch the lighting of an eternal flame at The
Sphere, the sculpture that originally sat between the twin towers.
Candlelight vigils and concerts with appropriate music will be held in all
boroughs before formal events end at 9 p.m.

Many of the ideas for the observances were adapted from plans submitted to
the city, mostly by e-mail. In making the suggestions, Bloomberg said,
people sought to "plan an observance that recalls the enormous tragedy of
that terrible day, that pays tribute to the heroism and sacrifice of those
we lost." (For the latest news on rebuilding, go to Gotham Gazettešs
