HUDSON SQUARE, NY.- As New York City and the world commemorate the 22nd anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, the New York City Fire Museum presents a special exhibition - Recovery and Reflection, Celebrating the 9/11 Tribute Museum. The temporary exhibition is on display through October 15th, 2023.

Recovery and Reflection, Celebrating the 9/11 Tribute Museum features 15 panels that were previously on display at the 9/11 Tribute Museum, which was founded by the September 11th Families' Association and closed in August 2022. Spread over four panels are the victims' names; additional panels display photos with quotes from key FDNY members, such as the former New York City Fire Commissioners Daniel Nigro and Sal Cassano, as well as firefighter Lee Ielpi. Visitors also can see a slideshow of photos illustrating the heroic acts of that day and the aftermath, photos of tributes that sprung up around firehouses after 9/11, as well as a short video of retired firefighter Bill Spade, who served with the FDNY from January 1985 to March 2003. Spade is the only Firefighter from Rescue 5 who made it home that day.

“The 9/11 Tribute Museum opened in 2006 held a special place in our city’s heart; it allowed visitors to learn about the events of 9/11 from a personal perspective, to mourn and to reflect, and this exhibition is a meaningful way to honor its part in our recovery and resilience,” says Jennifer Brown, Director of the New York City Fire Museum. “We are grateful to be able to collaborate with the leaders of the 9/11 Tribute Museum to present artifacts that speak to both the horror of the day and the tremendous display of resilience and determination afterwards.”

Lee Ielpi, Board President of the September 11th Families Association and 9/11 Tribute Museum said, "Honoring the legacy of the 9/11 Tribute Museum honors the 9/11 community who rose up to be an inspiration in recovery and educate millions of people. Family members, survivors, first responders, recovery workers and residents of Lower Manhattan showed the true spirit of strength by sharing their stories at the 9/11 Tribute Museum."

Jennifer Adams-Webb, CEO of the Association and 9/11 Tribute Museum reflected by saying, "The 9/11 Tribute Museum welcomed people from over 130 countries to hear the authentic personal stories from our diverse community. We are thankful to the NYC Fire Museum for honoring the 9/11 Tribute Museum and the inspiring stories of recovery from the 9/11 community.”

Visitors also can pay tribute in the Fire Museum’s permanent 9/11 Memorial Room. The memorial is the first permanent space dedicated to the 343 members of the FDNY who lost their lives on 9/11. It features a black marble and tile structure with pictures of the firefighters lost in the attacks; cases displaying tools used and items recovered from the Ground Zero recovery effort; and a wall-size timeline chronicling that day’s tragic events.

The New York City Fire Museum is marking the 22nd anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks with a commemorative wreath-laying ceremony in its 9/11 Memorial Room on Monday, September 11, 2023, at 11:30 AM. The program will include remarks from FDNY leadership as well as the Color Guard, chaplain, and vocalist.

The Museum is located at 278 Spring Street between Varick and Hudson Streets, in the former quarters of the FDNY's Engine Company No. 30, a renovated 1904 firehouse.
