An official 9/11 commemoration will begin in New York this Tuesday, September 11, 2012 in the morning at 8:39 a.m. It will take place at the National September 11 Memorial plaza, an area that once held the twin towers but now hosts two memorial pools dedicated to the attack victims.
There will be a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m. ET to mark when the first commercial plane struck the north tower. At that time, houses of worship across New York City are expected to toll their bells in remembrance.
