To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the September 11 terrorists attacks, the New York Historical Society (www.ny

The presentation, which runs from September 8, 2011 through April 1, 2012, features a selection of photographs taken by professional and amateur photographers during the immediate aftermath of the attack on the World Trade Center. It also includes letters written to policemen and firemen; objects that were placed in makeshift shrines around New York; images and texts from the New York Times “Portraits of Grief” series; photographs of the Tribute in Light; and drawings of the National September 11 Memorial, designed by architect Michael Arad with the assistance of landscape architect Peter Walker.
