New York City, September 11, 2007—Twin beams of light illuminate the Manhattan skyline during the sixth anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center.

The "Tribute in Lights" is a temporary art installation made up of 88 searchlights placed near Ground Zero that project the massive beams, symbolizing the collapsed towers.

2,750 people died when terrorists flew two jetliners into the twin towers on the morning of September 11, 2001.
