“The men who were there with my dad remember seeing him shouting orders and picking guys up and pushing them out of the area. Everyone thought that he was headed out, too, but when they looked back they saw him heading right back into the chaos. He would not leave his men inside.”
Salvatore “Sal” Cassano, retired fire commissioner of the FDNY will return to the World Trade Center site on Saturday June 20, 2015 as a special guest for the 9/11 Memorial Museum’s Stories & Art program.
Stories & Art is designed for children ages 5 to 10 and their caregivers visiting the Museum. The program is free and is offered every Saturday.
On July 4, in honor of Independence Day, 9/11 Memorial staff passed out American flags to visitors who placed them in each of the 2,983 parapets, in tribute to those perished and for those that served our nation.
To thousands of Ground Zero recovery workers, the Last Column represents a symbol of resilience after 9/11. Standing at 36-feet tall, the Last Column is a 58-ton beam that was part of the core structure of the South Tower. During the recovery effort, workers covered the beam with markings, pictures and tributes.
One of the world’s most recognizable leaders will visit the 9/11 Memorial and Museum in September. Pope Francis will visit on Sept. 25, 2015 to pay his respects to the victims of 9/11 and meet with local religious leaders from across many faiths.
Each of the 17 fire helmets in the 9/11 Memorial Museum’s care tell a unique story about the person who it belonged to and the experiences he had on Sept. 11, 2001. The fire helmets in the collection range from those worn by the probationary to the level of the chief.

Recently, the museum’s education staff gave a completed mural as a gift to the first school group to attend one of the education programs, which began last fall. That school group was from the Aquinas Honor Society at the Immaculate Conception School in Queens.
