15 Pictures 15 Years Later: NYC Remembers 9/11

The terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001 forever changed the New York City skyline but the resolve of New Yorkers has never wavered. Fifteen years later a touching memorial now stands in remembrance to the more than 3,000 people who lost their lives when terrorists flew two airplanes into the World Trade Center towers.

Standing in the footprint of the twin towers now sits two spectacular pools lined with the names of those who perished:
