New Yorkers are still paying tribute to the victims of the attack on the World Trade Center that took place three years ago Saturday.

At sundown, two powerful light beams inspired by the twin towers were projected upward from Ground Zero. They'll remain on through the night.

The memorial lights were first seen six months after the attack. It was then agreed that they'd appear each anniversary of 9/11.

Earlier in the day, parents and grandparents of those lost on September 11th stood at the World Trade Center site. They recited the names of the nearly 2,800 people who died there.

The list took more than three hours, punctuated by tearful dedications when the readers reached the names of their own lost loved ones.
