According to the proposed map on the organization's website, the looped trail will travel south from the World Trade Center into New Jersey and follow a large portion of the Delaware & Raritan Canal before crossing into Morrisville on the Calhoun Street Bridge.

Today marks the 16th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks.

Events meant to mark the occasion across the Midlands were canceled though, due to Tropical Storm Irma.

"Our country came together that day".

The lights have been tested over the past week, leading many New Yorkers to pause and think about the 16th anniversary.

This year, the focus remained on the names read out beneath the waterfall pools and lines of trees.

But far too numerous men and women of 9/11 - victims and first responders alike - have names known only to family and friends.

"It's where I get my strength".
