City to Honor 9/11 Victims at Vacant Ground Zero
Powerful lights will send beams skyward from the now-empty site at nightfall tonight
Updated 6:34 PM EDT, Thu, Sep 10, 2009



Friday marks the the eighth anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, with a somber vigil planned at the World Trade Center where mourners will remember the 2,752 people who died in the destruction of the Twin Towers.

They will also mourn those who died in the attacks just hours later on the Pentagon and those who died on a fourth plane, which crashed in Pennsylvania after the passengers overpowered the hijackers.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg and other officials will be on hand for the annual ritual at Ground Zero, which includes a reading of all the victims names and a moment of silence to mark the impact of the two hijacked planes and the collapse of the towers.

Powerful lights will send beams skyward from the now-empty site at nightfall tonight.  Rebuilding at the site has been delayed over plans, financing squabbles and the downturned economy.

St. Paul's Chapel located on Broadway at Wall Street will open its doors at 6 p.m. for an all-night vigil and labyrinth walk until 6 a.m. The Bell of Hope will be rung at 8:46 am, with events in the church continuing until 2 p.m.

The anniversary also marks the first year that 9/11 will be recognized as a National Day of Service and Remembrance, an act signed into legislation by President Obama in April. The National Day of Service and Remembrance, which is sponsored by the non-profit MyGoodDeed, gives people a chance to help out in a variety of good deeds and service projects around the city.

For local activities in New York City, you can find more information through NYCares.
