Ginkgos and Logan Airport 9/11 Memorial

The first two planes hijacked on Sept. 11, 2001 took off from Logan International Airport, setting in motion a chain of events that changed the world. Massport officials unveiled plans for a $3.5 million memorial that will commemorate Logan as the "Point of Departure."
Visitors entering the two-acre memorial will find two separate walkways diverging from the same spot, symbolizing that American Flight 11 and United Flight 175 both took off from Logan that morning. As the planes took different routes to the World Trade Center, the walkways each will offer a different path, winding through a grove of Ginkgo trees.
