To honor the moment, the New-York Historical Society will stage a series of installations and film screenings that strive to provide understanding and context around what New Yorkers collectively experienced on the horrifying day of history. The experience will take place throughout Saturday, September 11, and will include the ethos-filled relics, including a damaged fire truck door from the first responders to arrive on the scene and candles, notes and mementos retrieved from memorials erected in the immediate aftermath.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, and you may be wondering what 9/11 memorial events there are in NYC to memorialize this solemn day.
Over the past two decades, NYC has memorialized those we lost in the attacks through music, somber ceremonies, art installations and incredible symbols like the Tower Lights.
In 2021, there are more ways than ever to remember 9/11—from a 5K for children affected by 9/11 to reflective concerts and more.
Here are some ways to mark the significant milestone.
