Recovery and Reflection, Celebrating the 9/11 Tribute Museum
August 30, 2023 through October 15 2023
Recovery and Reflection, Celebrating the 9/11 Tribute featured 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 saw 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.
