My eyes always keep searching,
something inexpressible,
above the far sky.
I long to get Lost,
inside the Evening-Twilight.
Silence always tickles me
—in a strange way;
I meet “me” in the time
between Sunset and Darkness.

NEW YORK (AP) — The annual beams of light that mark roughly where the twin towers once stood are once again illuminating the New York City skyline.  The “Tribute in Light” is a visual memorial to those who were lost on Sept. 11, 2001, and is turned on for every anniversary. The lights go on at sunset on Sept. 11 and go off at dawn on Sept. 12.

The beams, coming from 88 searchlights south of the World Trade Center site, were first put in place six months after the attack and are now a yearly tradition.  At full power, the lights can be seen for many miles, depending on the weather.

Manhattan is the most densely populated of the five boroughs of New York City. The borough is coterminous with New York County, an original county of the U.S. state of New York. The borough mostly consists of Manhattan Island, bounded by the East, Hudson and Harlem Rivers, but also includes several small adjacent islands and a small area on the mainland. Manhattan has been described as the economic and cultural center of the United States[1][2][3] and is home to the United Nations Headquarters.[4] Wall Street in Lower Manhattan is one of the financial capitals of the world,[5] has an estimated GDP of over $1.2 trillion,[6] and is home of both the New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ. Manhattan’s real estate market is among the most expensive in the world,[7] and many multinational media conglomerates are based in the borough.
