9/11 memorial planners announce name arrangement
NEW YORK -- Friends, relatives, co-workers and strangers who died together on Sept. 11 will have their names listed next to each other on the national memorial at ground zero.
The National September 11 Memorial & Museum announced Wednesday the final arrangement of the nearly 3,000 names framing two waterfall-filled pools in the footprints of where the original World Trade Center towers stood.
The memorial also announced a web application to locate the names. Handheld devices and electronic kiosks will also direct visitors.
The names' arrangement is based on where the victims were when terrorists attacked on Sept. 11, 2001, and Feb. 26, 1993, and their relationships to others who died.
For instance, firefighters are listed according to their companies.
They can also be simultaneously listed adjacent to relatives.
