A historic modification of the 9/11 Memorial, the Glade also recognizes the courage, selflessness and perseverance of the individuals involved in the rescue and recovery effort.

The design includes a pathway and six large stone monoliths inlaid with melted down World Trade Center steel.

The Glade is located where the primary ramp that was used during the rescue effort once stood.

The new Memorial will honor the first responders, workers, survivors, residents and others for many years to come.
