Time:
The week of Sept. 10, 2001 brought 24-year-old Alejandro Eguiluz on business from Mexico City to New York City. He was scheduled to speak at an event on Thurs., Sept. 13, in the Windows of the World meeting space atop the North Tower. On the morning of Sept. 11, Eguiluz was in his hotel room and decided to evacuate, grabbing only his hotel room key card. After the North Tower fell, Eguiluz instinctively tried to walk back to reclaim his belongings at the Marriott Hotel. Police on the scene, however, told him that the hotel was gone, and that he had to leave the area. About a week after the 9/11 attacks, Eguiluz returned to Mexico City. Approximately two years later, he received a letter from the NYPD Property Clerk reporting that some of his personal items had been found in the wreckage. Eguiluz’s key card represents his experience as a survivor, and he donated this item to the 9/11 Museum’s Collection. https://911memorial.io/2SA23A1

Steel box columns outlined the footprints of the Twin Towers and provided structural support for the facade of each tower. Archaeological remnants from the Twin Towers like these box columns have been preserved in their original locations and incorporated into the 9/11 Memorial Museum’s design. After 9/11, what remained of these columns was cut down to the foundation level and is now visible in the Museum.

The green roof of the 9/11 Memorial creates a beautiful space for reflection. Did you know that the Memorial’s sustainable design conserves energy, water, and other resources? Rainwater is collected in storage tanks below the plaza’s surface, and the tanks supply water for the more than 400 swamp white oak trees and other vegetation. https://911memorial.io/3tI88YN

Did you know the names on the 9/11 Memorial have a special arrangement? The names are grouped by the locations and circumstances in which victims found themselves during the attacks. The North Pool parapets include the names of those who were killed at the North Tower, on hijacked Flight 11, and in the 1993 bombing. The South Pool parapets include the names of first responders as well as victims who were killed at the South Tower, on hijacked Flight 175, at the Pentagon, on hijacked Flight 77, and on hijacked Flight 93. Within these groupings, names are arranged in a system of “meaningful adjacencies.” Friends and colleagues appear together, as well as the crews of each of the four flights and first responder agencies and units. https://911memorial.io/3tldx7W

I lost a friend Marion V Manning Marsh & McLennan on 9/11. I've seen other tributes to other Marsh & McLennan victims on 9/11 that mention what floor they were on. I'm trying to find out what floor Marion V Manning was on when Flt 11 hit North Tower.
Wrote this back in 2006..Im not from the US, but what happend was still heartfelt ❤ ...I feel sorry for those who lost their loved ones...Its been 5 years today, and a lot have changed...but somethings still remain... Ground Zero.. They needed a hero That day Two planes were comming their way The towers standing tall Proud The flag blowing in the wind That morning for many The last The tears of the broken The souls of the lost The memory we cary The needed a hero That day On Ground Zero we pray To never see again that dark sunny day... -mr.m 11/09/2006

To all the hard working people at the museum, thank you for my flag. It brought tears to my eyes when I held it in my hands. I was 12 years old when 9/11 happened and I will never forget. Thank you so much
