In all the years we've never gone to Ground Zero to sketch. It's certainly not for lack of respect but because of the sorrow surrounding the events of 9/11.

Many years later the area has changed. Incredible efforts have been made to create a suitable memorial for what happened. Talented architects and artists have made their contributions. As a native New Yorker, although the site fills me with sorrow, I can't help but be impressed by the throngs of tourists who visit the site to pay their respects. It has become a very New York location and will be the site for our sketching explorations this Saturday.

The official name for the area is the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. The memorial is located at the World Trade Center site, the former location of the Twin Towers, which were destroyed during the September 11 attacks.
