NY historical society to host free 9/11 exhibit
NEW YORK (AP) — The New-York Historical Society plans to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks with a special exhibition.
The exhibition is titled "Remembering 9/11." It will present several hundred photographs taken by professional and amateur photographers in the immediate aftermath of the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center.
Organizers say the free exhibit also will include letters written to police officers and firefighters, objects that were placed at makeshift shrines around the city and drawings of the National September 11 Memorial.
The society started a series of exhibitions, public events and education initiatives called "History Responds" one month after the attacks. Since then, more than 150,000 visitors have taken part in its programs.
The exhibit will open Sept. 8 and remain on view through April 1.
