DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- An anonymous sand sculpturer re-created the Manhattan skyline, complete with the Twin Towers, on the Word's Most Famous Beach in Daytona in commemoration of the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

It is here where the hard wet sands, nurtured by the incoming surf, make it possible for beach driving to continue along certain stretches of the Atlantic coastline.

The sculpture depicts the World Trade Center as it looked prior to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, in which two airliners hijacked by Middle East terrorists out of Boston's Logan International Airport slammed into the Twin Towers. 

The sand sculpture displayed Sunday, included the words, "Not forgotten."
