On 9/11 and in the weeks and months following the attacks, men and women descended on Ground Zero to help in the rescue and recovery efforts. We share four stories from some of the women at Ground Zero whose stories and experiences have been captured in the 9/11 Memorial Museum’s collection.

Long Island born Kristin Irvine-Ryan got married in June 2001 and lived with her husband in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village. She was a founding member of Secret Smiles, a charity that anonymously delivered gifts to families in need. On 9/11, Kristin, a trader at Sandler O’Neill & Partners, was at work on the South Tower’s 104th floor. Today to honor her 47th birthday a white rose was placed at her name on the 9/11 Memorial.

A view of the 9/11 Memorial and Museum from above. Set within the footprints of the Twin Towers, the Memorial features two enormous waterfalls and reflecting pools, each about an acre in size. More than 400 trees surround the reflecting pools creating a canopy over the space.

As night falls on New York City, the lights from the 9/11 Memorial illuminates the pools and shines through the names inscribed on the parapets.

This severely damaged FDNY ambulance was driven by EMS Battalion 17 and was parked near Vesey and Wall Street on 9/11. First responders parked their vehicles along the perimeter of the World Trade Center as they rushed to the towers. As the towers collapsed emergency vehicles functioned as temporary shelters from fallen debris and dust clouds. https://911memorial.io/2qiaTTz

The Tridents, two 80-foot tall steel columns that once formed part of the North Tower, glow from inside the 9/11 Memorial Museum at night. Recovered from the rubble at Ground Zero, today the Tridents are symbols of hope and resilience.

Nearly 40,000 windows in the Twin Towers shattered on 9/11. This windowpane, from the 82nd floor of the South Tower, is the only one known to have survived intact. Discovered at Ground Zero, the windowpane was donated to the 9/11 Memorial Museum and is on display in Foundation Hall.
