Remember this day.
This memorial is a place of contemplation, reflection, and remembrance for a world impacted by the events of September 11, 2001.
The Boston Logan 9/11 Memorial is a permanent memorial that honors the passengers and crews of American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, the two planes that departed Boston Logan for Los Angeles, but were hijacked by terrorists who flew them into the World Trade Towers in New York.
This memorial recognizes the compassion and professionalism of Boston Logan employees, many of whom lost colleagues, friends, and family, for their dedication to duty during that difficult time and who have worked so hard to secure and improve the safety of the flying public since that day. It is a place of reflection designed to provide a measure of comfort to all those whom tragedy has touched and will touch in the years to come.
Landscaped paths lead to a large glass cube that presents two glass panels etched with the names of every person aboard each flight. From inside, visitors look up at a sky transformed by a prism of reflective panels by day; the cube glows with a soft light by night.
The Place of Remembrance by Moskow Linn Architects of Boston was chosen by a public design competition judged by a committee of airline representatives, Massport officials, local design professionals, and families of those who were lost, many of whom were based in New England.
The Boston Logan 9/11 Memorial has been open to all 24 hours a day, seven days a week since its dedication on September 9, 2008.
