Tribute in Light honors victims of September 11th attacks

The annual Tribute in Light is illuminating the night sky in the city.

The lights went on at sunset and will fade away at dawn early Tuesday in commemoration of the attacks.

They can be seen for miles from their location at West and Morris Streets in Lower Manhattan.

The art installation first went up in March of 2002.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has also ordered that flags be flown at half-staff in honor of the attack victims.
