    9/11 'Tribute in Light' memorial in NYC canceled amid COVID-19 concerns

    The iconic Lower Manhattan 9/11 memorial display that features twin beams of light to honor victims of the terror attacks will not shine this year over coronavirus concerns, organizers said Thursday. The annual “Tribute in Light” display requires a large crew to pull off, the 9/11 Memorial and Museum said on its website, posing health risks this year that “were far too great.”

    “In a spirit of unity and remembrance, the city will come together for a “Tribute in Lights” to inspire the world and honor the promise to never forget,” the museum said.

    “Many iconic New York City buildings will be lighting their spires and facades in blue to honor those killed on 9/11.”
