Ground Zero Museum Workshop: Never Forget

The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 have left a mark on New York unlike anywhere else in the country. When the twin towers of the World Trade Center fell, the city lost the largest buildings it had ever seen, and the skyline was permanently changed. As a nation, we’re still trying to come to terms with the repercussions of that fateful day. The Ground Zero Museum Workshop was founded in 2005 by Marlon Suson, an actor, playwright and philanthropist who was tasked in the days following the attack to document the disaster and recovery with photographs. His images of the days, weeks, and months following the crisis are striking and humbling, celebrating the heroism of the respondents who combed the wreckage for survivors. It’s important that we remember the horrific effects of global terrorism on a human scale as well as a national one, so this museum is a must-visit for any American.
