At Boston Logan Airport: Visit the 9/11 Memorial

If you happen to be traveling to or from Boston Logan International Airport today- September 11 – or anytime – keep in mind that the airport has a 9/11 Memorial that honors the passengers and crews of American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175 – the two planes that left Logan for Los Angeles but were hijacked by terrorists and flown into the World Trade Towers in New York.

The Place of Remembrance – near the Hilton hotel at Logan – has landscaped paths leading to a large glass cube featuring two glass panels etched with the names of every person aboard each flight.

Visitors can go inside the cube and look up at the sky through a prism of reflective panels. At night, the cube glows with a soft light.
