Rescue and recovery workers from all over the country arrived at Ground Zero to help. Joining these brave men and women were dogs specially trained in search and rescue, police work, therapy and comfort. Working alongside their handlers, these four legged heroes put their lives on the line for us. The spirit and stories of these heroic dogs live on at the 9/11 Memorial & Museum. https://911memorial.io/2qWydG2

From the rubble at Ground Zero, stood a 36-foot tall piece of steel from the South Tower. Uncovered by rescue and recovery workers, the “Last Column” was soon filled with inscriptions and mementos left by workers, relatives and friends of victims. In the series Interpreting the Last Column: The Stories Behind the Markings we share the stories of this significant piece of steel.

“There were people in the streets with American flags, and signs, thanking us, waving to us, screaming at us.” -NYPD Emergency Service Unit (ESU) member Anthony Conti

In the weeks following September 11, 2001, the West Side Highway became known as “Hero Highway” as crowds lined the road to cheer and wave banners while thousands of rescue and recovery workers traveled to Ground Zero. https://911memorial.io/2q3Of1o

On 9/11, NYPD Emergency Service Unit (ESU) officer David Brink responded to the World Trade Center and remained on the site throughout the rescue and recovery efforts. While working on the wreckage pile, he discovered the words “Thank you!” written in black marker across the palms of his gloves. The message served as a reminder for Brink of the appreciation and support for the rescue and recovery workers. Donated by Brink, they are part of the 9/11 Memorial Museum Collection. https://911memorial.io/2q0HvNI

Opening today in the 9/11 Memorial Museum: “Cover Stories: Remembering the Twin Towers on The New Yorker.”

For years, The New Yorker represented the iconic Twin Towers on the cover of the magazine. After 9/11, the illustrations depicted the emotions, anxieties and sadness that engulfed Americans after the attacks. Today, the covers portray the new landmarks of the revitalized World Trade Center site. Featuring 33 covers throughout the years, “Cover Stories” illustrates the symbolic site from the early 1970s to today. www.911memorial.org/coverstories

This is for us to remember.” -Rosie Perez

Brooklynite Rosie Perez’s first visit to the 9/11 Memorial & Museum was emotional, but necessary for her to remember as a person, New Yorker and American. Honor our resilience at the 9/11 Memorial & Museum. www.911memorial.org/ocos
