The longitudinal axis of the Memorial is oriented north-to-south, a bearing of 180 degrees, and represents the first plane that slammed into the World Trade Center. Four aluminum benches, representing each of the four hijacked planes, sit at the northern end of the Memorial, facing a monumental, unfinished concrete wall. The wall is concave - as if it has been forced inward - yet is unbroken. This wall serves as a backdrop for a composition comprised of a 10-foot-long fragment of a massive steel beam from the World Trade Center and 13 steel cables that extend outward from the wall to grasp the beam. The cables represent the 13 municipalities of Mercer County.
