    New York City marked the 17th anniversary of 9/11 with a moment of silence at the site of the attacks on Tuesday morning. Governor Andrew Cuomo, Rudy Giuliani, Nikki Haley, Bill de Blasio and Chris Christie were among those in downtown Manhattan. Giuliani was the mayor of New York and Christie governor of New Jersey on the day.

    James McGlynn looks towards the One World Trade Center site wearing a tie bearing the likeness of the original World Trade Center towers. He says he purchased it about about a week after the attacks in 2001 and has worn it every anniversary since

    he annual 9/11 commemorations are by now familiar rituals, centered on reading the names of the dead. But each year at ground zero, victims' relatives infuse the ceremony with personal messages of remembrance, concern and inspiration
