BOSTON

A $3.5 million memorial honoring those who died when terrorists hijacked two planes from Boston and crashed them into New York's World Trade Center seven years ago has been dedicated at Logan International Airport.

The 2.5-acre site was dedicated at Boston's airport Tuesday.

The outdoor memorial, next to a Hilton hotel and parking garage, is planted with grass and ginkg o trees. Two walkways lead up a small knoll to a glass cube containing the names of the people aboard American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, which took off from Logan on Sept. 11, 2001.

Gov. Deval Patrick said the memorial also serves as a reminder of the resilience of the United States.
