In a rare photo opportunity this picture was taken which shows a cross on the glass facade of the Freedom Tower. Because of the angle of the sun at that precise moment the cross was only visible for a few seconds. Luckily it was captured by one camera.

The 9/11 Tribute Center was 
 co-founded by Lee Ielpi (Recue 2). The Tribute Center is dedicated to documenting the history of 9/11 described by those who lived through the tragedy. 

9/11 Tribute Center volunteers - family who lost loved ones in the attack, first responders and 9/11 survivors – share their 9/11 stories with the public every day in our museum galleries, as guides on the 9/11 Memorial Plaza and at a weekly speaker series at the 9/11 Memorial Museum entitled, 9/11 Tribute Center Presents: We Were There. The 9/11 Tribute Center
and 9/11 Memorial Museum are two separate institutions that work in partnership.

Share your story to honor the memories of the 343, those who have lost their lives due to 9/11 related illness and all who perished that fateful day.  Help make sure we never forget. 


Extremely flexible time commitment.
