Five years after the 9/11 terror attacks on New York City?s World Trade Center, solemn ceremonies were held in New York City and across Long Island Monday to remember the nearly 3,000 people killed.
In the area where the Twin Towers once stood in the financial district of Manhattan, spouses and partners of the 2,749 people who died at the trade center read the names of the victims. Families and friends of those killed were also at the site to lay flowers to remember their loved ones. Moments of silence were held at 8:46 a.m., 9:03 a.m., 9:59 a.m. and 10:29 a.m., the times when the planes struck the towers and the towers fell.
A moment of silence was also held at 8:46 a.m. in the American and United terminals of Logan International Airport in Boston. Both flights took off from Logan before slamming into the towers.
