Documenting the 9/11 World Trade Center Attacks

  • Tuesday, October 26, 2021
  • 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
  • Online

In recognition of the 20th anniversary of September 11th and American Archives Month, archivists Michael Lorenzini and Kenneth Cobb will discuss documentation held by the Municipal Archives of the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center and its aftermath. Mr. Lorenzini will display photographs he took on 9/11 and in subsequent days and weeks as City archivists collected ephemera left by the families of the victims at Pier 94 (the temporary family service center), and at the 9/11 memorial sites on the footprint of the towers; materials placed in City parks and other public places; artifacts of the World Trade Center buildings; and correspondence sent to the Mayor's office and rescue workers. The program will also include the story of the flag recovered at the site that has become an iconic symbol of New York City’s resiliency.
