Item no. 28255
|Collection: New-York Historical Society|
One of the few graphics encompassing all of the locations of the 9/11 attacks.
The stars represent the planes, one crashing into the Pentagon in Washington D.C., two crashing into the World Trade Center in New York City, and one that went down in a field in western Pennsylvania. Recovery workers built this shrine, located near a plywood barricade at Ground Zero. Note the wooden cross, and also the candles and other evidence that the shrine is still in use four months after it was built.
