World Trade Center Memorial Fog-WTC-9:11-Veterans Day-NYC

Last night, Untapped Cities contributor Rachel Fawn Alban shared this trippy photograph she took of the National September 11th Memorial, with a footprint of the World Trade Center towers reflected in the fog against One World Trade Center. While this is not the most overt photograph of Veterans Day in New York City by far, the subtleness of the image makes it our pick to mark the holiday – a reminder of those lost and who served on 9/11 and in the conflicts before and since.
