The image below was taken on September 11, 2010 from the Brooklyn Bridge Park in Brooklyn. The upwards lights shining high from lower Manhattan over the Brooklyn Bridge is the Tribute in Light. Each beam of light represents a tower from the World Trade Center Twin Towers.
The Tribute in Light first ran as a temporary installation from March 11 to April 14, 2002. The Tribute in Light was launched again in 2003 to mark the second anniversary of the September 11th attack on the World Trade Center. As of 2010, the Tribute in Light has been repeated every year on September 11. (Source: Wikipedia- Tribute in Light)

The photo below is from the 2008 Tribute in Ligh. In 2008 New York City had an art exhibit where the city built make-shift waterfalls across the city (mostly on the East River). The waterfalls officially began flowing on June 26, 2008. The NYC Waterfalls ran from 7 am to 10 pm (under illumination after sunset), until October 13, 2008 (Source: New York City Waterfalls). One of these waterfalls can be observed on the left tower of the Brooklyn Bridge. This photo of the Tribute in Light was taken from the Manhattan Bridge.
