9/11 Memorial & Museum

Shared publicly  - 
 
Brooklyn-born Jeffrey Giordano lived in Tottenville, Staten Island, with his wife and their three children. A firefighter with FDNY Ladder Company 3, Jeffrey was also an officer of the New York Firefighters Burn Center Foundation. On the morning of Sept. 11, Firefighter Giordano appeared on a television show to promote the charity before responding to the towers. Today we honor his 61st birthday by placing a white rose at his name on the 9/11 Memorial.

The antenna that was located on top of the North Tower was massive in size at 360 feet tall and responsible for transmitting radio and television signals. This fragment seen in the 9/11 Memorial Museum is almost 20 feet from the original antenna. On Sept. 11, transmissions for most stations failed shortly after hijacked Flight 11 struck the North Tower. All transmissions ceased by 10:28 a.m., when the tower collapsed. http://911memorial.io/2jtsR1k

Before joining the PAPD, Alfonse Niedermeyer worked as an attendant at the World Trade Center observation deck where he wore this brown silk tie as part of his uniform. On Sept. 11 he responded to the Twin Towers. Niedermeyer’s tie is a tribute to his service and is on display at the 9/11 Memorial Museum. http://911memorial.io/2iLTZHN

9/11 Memorial Museum visitors stop in front of FDNY Engine 21. Dispatched to the World Trade Center after hijacked Flight 175 struck the South Tower, the company's truck was parked on Vesey Street under a pedestrian overpass. The front of the vehicle was damaged by flaming debris.

Lorraine Mary Greene Lee lived on Staten Island with her husband Johnny. The couple attended tai chi classes together and took annual cruises to Bermuda. On Sept. 11 Lorraine was on the 101st floor of the South Tower where she worked as an administrative assistant at Aon Corporation. She was 37 years old. Her ID card was recovered and donated to the 9/11 Memorial Museum Collection by the Lee and Greene families. http://911memorial.io/2ioAL7H

At 27 years old, Gerard Baptiste, a firefighter with the FDNY, Ladder 9 purchased his first motorcycle, a fixer-upper, and brought it to his East Village firehouse where he intended to work on its restoration. After Baptiste’s death on 9/11, the surviving members of his company took on the project of restoring the “Dream Bike”

In January 2010, where debris and rubble once resided, the 9/11 Memorial takes shape.

Within days of the 9/11 attacks, New York artist Ejay Weiss rode his bike to Ground Zero to collect ash and grit from the devastation. He incorporated the ash into nine paintings called “9/11 Elegies,” which serve as a metaphor of both the towers’ windows and their footprints. His paintings are currently on display in the 9/11 Memorial Museum’s special exhibition, Rendering the Unthinkable. http://911memorial.io/2j9f51m

Search and rescue dogs worked tirelessly in the rubble at Ground Zero after the 9/11 attacks. Veterinarians and handlers who cared for the heroic rescue dogs recently recorded oral histories about caring for the canines. Their stories are now part of the 9/11 Memorial Museum’s oral history collection. http://911memorial.io/2ihOIsQ
