Introducing the GNYC Big Apple Series
Council Shoulder Patches –
An annual Greater New York Councils council shoulder patch series capturing the essence and world famous landmarks of the greatest city in the world!
This year will feature the iconic Tribute in Light with the words “Never Forget” etched on the bottom commemorating the 10th Anniversary of September 11th.
The Tribute in Light was first presented on April 11, 2002, six months after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
The Municipal Art Society of New York has presented it annually since. The majestic blue twin beams shine from dusk on September 11, through dawn the next day. The illuminated memorial reaches 4 miles into the sky and is visible within a sixty-mile radius on a clear night.
The Tribute has become a world-renowned icon of remembrance, honoring those who were lost, as well as those who worked so hard to get our city through that terrible trial.
