This is an appropriate time to remember the events of September 11, 2001, now that it is exactly ten years after that horrific attack on New York’s World Trade Center, Washington DC’s Pentagon, and a downed airliner whose final destination can only be nightmarishly imagined.
In New York the Ground Zero Museum Workshop:Images and Remnants from the Recovery is the ideal place to spend some time, looking at stunning and rare photos taken by the “Official Ground Zero Photographer for the Uniformed Firefighters Association,” Gary Marlon Suson.
Visitors have described the one room exhibit as the “biggest little museum” in New York; with large content in a small facility.
Many photos are displayed in realistic 3D installations. Also on display are remnants from the towers and rare video footage.
There are daily two-hour long tours with your own tour guide for explanations. Entrance fees are donated to 9/11 and FDNY related charities. The images are non-graphic, making this memorial to the tragic day a kid-friendly venue.
Please note that the Ground Zero Museum Workshop is NOT located at Ground Zero, but in the meat-packing district just 7 minutes away on the “E” train from the site of the WTC at 420 West 14th Street, 2nd floor, 212-209-3370.
On most days there are two tours, and it is strongly recommended to buy tickets in advance, they sell out quickly since only 28 people can be on any one tour at a time. Follow the link for more information.
