The focal points of the 9/11 Memorial & Museum are two pools, each nearly an acre in size, that sit in the footprints of the former North and South Towers. Each pool features the largest manmade waterfall in North America, with water cascading down 30 feet into a square basin, then dropping another 20 feet and disappears into a central void.

Designed by architect Michael Arad, the pools are surrounded by bronze parapet that have the names of the 2,983 people who were killed in the 2001 and 1993 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. Family and friends of those with their names inscribed often leave flowers or flags in the letters of their loved one's name.
