The North and South pools are located in New York City, New York, USA. The pools sit at the foot steps of the collapsed world trade centers. (Twin Tower) These pools are made of solid black granite, cost $500 million dollars and are surrounded by 400 trees.
Along the side of each pool are the names of the people who died in each tower, the 1993 world trade center bombing, the pentagon, and on the flights that hit the twin towers, the pentagon and the field in Philadelphia.
The 9/11 memorial pools were built to honor the nearly 3,000 people that died on September 11 2001. Construction of the pools and the museum started on September 11 2006. Michael Arad, Daniel Libeskind, and Peter Walker were the Architects who planned/created the 9/11 memorial pools and museum.
Every minute each pools blast 26,000 gallons of water over a 30 foot drop. And each pool is equipped with coin filters to keep the drains from clogging up with coins that visitors can throw in.
The 9/11 memorial was finished in 2011 and took a total of 5 years to create. In the beginning before the memorial was created Michael Arad, Daniel Libeskind, and Peter Walker had to pick 1 out of 5,200 entries in a global competition.
Both pools at the 9/11 memorial site are about an acre in size. Every 1 of the 400 trees surrounding the memorial are Swamp White Oaks and help clean the cities air surrounding the park.
over 18 million people have visited the 9/11 memorial since it opened in 2011. Approximately 3,600,000 people go to the memorial each year. These people go to the memorial to see over 12,500 artifacts, 23,000 still images, and 580 hours of film.
