Ten years later in Lower Manhattan. Here’s the live broadcast from the 9/11 Memorial, as 2,749 men and women who died on September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center are remembered.
Here on the Lower East Side, community and arts organizations are commemorating 9/11 in their own ways. At the Educational Alliance, visitors are experiencing a moving exhibition, “Embedded Light: 9/11 in 2011.”
The Angel Orensanz Foundation has invited the community to take part in another exhibition, “3,000 Pebbles in Memoriam – A 9/11 Anniversary Tribute.”
The New Museum presents New York-based artist Elena del Rivero’s 9/11 themed project, “[Swi:t] Home: A CHANT (2001-2006)” and is offering free admission today.
This afternoon, through the 9/11 Cares program, volunteers will help to maintain East River Park by planting, weeding, mulching, and painting the grounds.
At dusk, the Two Bridges Neighborhood Council holds a quiet, reflective memorial along the waterfront.
And beginning at 4 p.m. and continuing into the evening, “From the Ashes III,” a series of musical performances, will take place at the Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center.
