    The sun rises behind the Postcards 9/11 memorial by New York architect Masayuki Sono on Staten Island New York on July 30, 2021. Built in 2004, it is a permanent memorial honoring the 274 Staten Island residents killed in the September 11 attacks of 2001 and in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Twenty years later, tucked between the buildings and boroughs of New York City, memorials and reminders can be found of a day that left nearly 3,000 people dead  ensuring the city that never sleeps will also never forget.
