Today, the names of the 2,752 victims of the September 11, 2001 attacks at the World Trade Center are being read at Zuccotti Park. The names are being recited by family members paired with members of the rebuilding, and there are moments of silence at 8:46 a.m. (observance of time first plane struck North Tower), 9:03 a.m. (observance of time second plane struck South Tower) 9:59 a.m. (observance of time of fall of the South Tower) and 10:29 a.m. (observance of time of fall of the North Tower).

Today is a day of service and there are other ceremonies around the city (FYI, the National 9/11 Memorial & Museum Preview site on Vesey is open only to victims' families and those closely impacted by the attacks today, but the Tribute WTC Visitor Center on Liberty Street will be open at 2 p.m., after the reading) but the , but one of the quieter, and very beautiful, ceremonies is the New York Buddhist Church's 9/11 Floating Lanterns Ceremony, which echoes the floating lanterns ceremony in Japan for the victims of the Hiroshima bombing. At Pier 40 on the Hudson River, people are invited to "come early to write loved ones’ names or a peace
message on a lantern" and then set them in the river (6 p.m.; PDF).
