Visiting the 9/11 Memorial at Boston Logan Airport

by Janis on October 11, 2017

In late September we spent a night at the Hilton Boston Logan Airport hotel before a Canada and New England cruise.

9.11 Memorial at Boston Logan AirportThe Logan Airport 9/11 Memorial is located across the street from the hotel.

Before heading to the cruise ship, I took a walk around the hotel and visited the memorial. It is called The Place of Remembrance and was designed by Moskow Linn Architects of Boston.

On September 11, 2001, these two flights departed Logan Airport for Los Angeles, but were hijacked by terrorists who crashed them into the World Trade Towers in New York.
