The 9/11 Memorial at the site of the World Trade Center will open to family members on September 11th and to the general public on September 12th. Nearly 3,000 names of those who were lost on that day, and in the 1993 bombing, are engraved on bronze parapets around cascading waterfalls. A new 9/11 Memorial Guide iPhone app helps locate each name.
Michael Arad designed the Memorial and explained that the concept "allows us to place the names of those who died that day next to each other in a meaningful way, marking the names of family and friends together, as they had lived and died."
Users of the 9/11 Memorial app can search for names, browse the cobblestones, and even listen to stories shared by friends and family. Photos and biographical information of each victim are also included.
Passes to visit the Memorial can be reserved online. A museum with thousands of artifacts from the attacks will open in 2012.
