Organizers said they hope to resume the tribute for the 20th anniversary next year.

Tribute in Light is a public art installation in which twin beams of light are projected into the sky.

The beams reach up to four miles into the sky and are made of eighty-eight 7,000-watt xenon light bulbs positioned into two 48-foot squares, mimicking the Twin Towers before they were brought down in the terrorist attack.

The U.S. has the most cases in the world of the coronavirus at 5.2 million. New York City was considered the first epicenter in the country, though cases have since plateaued.
