The 911 Tribute Center
September 11, 2001 was a day of devastation for all Americans, but particularly for those present during the attacks on the World Trade Centers. Since that day, survivors, rescue workers, friends, family, and community members have come together to honor and remember those lost in that terrible tragedy. Through seemingly unbearable grief, the World Trade Center community came together with the City of New York to create the 911 Tribute Center as a symbol of hope and healing.
The center is a direct result of efforts by the September 11th Families’ Association whose goal is to help others understand the impact and loss of 9/11 while facilitating recovery. Each one of the over 600 trained tour guides, on any given day 200 of them are actively providing tours, have a personal connection to trade center attacks. Some were fortunate enough to escape the collapsing buildings, others lost loved ones in the terrorist strikes, while still more were first responders, community members, and civilian volunteers in the aftermath of the destruction. Exhibits include: World Trade Center Community, The Attacks, Those Lost, Recovery, Healing, and The Future.
While sharing their personal stories, survivors and others involved will guide you through The 911 Tribute Center galleries where you will learn about the disastrous impact on the world trade center community and interact with a timeline of the attacks. Videos and images of recovery efforts along with portraits of those lost in the tragedy lead to a gallery of tributes from around the world that inspire peace and promote healing. Finally, a mural of the changing Manhattan skyline invokes hope for the future.
