New Yorkers get first look at 9/11 memorial

NEW YORK (CNN) - It'll be a little while before the 9/11 memorial is open, but now people can see what it will look like.

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Sharp Electronics unveiled a huge video screen at the memorial site in New York City, playing images of what the 9/11 memorial will look like.

It also counts down the days until the memorial opens on the 10th anniversary of the terror attacks, Sept. 11, 2011.

"It's going to be a memorial that I think our city and our country will be proud of, one that will inspire future generations, including all those from around the world who visit it, will visit it in the years to come," said New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
