'Ground Zero Museum Workshop: Images & Remnants from the Recovery'
Ground Zero Museum Workshop: Images & Remnants from the Recovery
is NYC's newest & most moving museum. Located in the Meat-Packing District
on West 14th st, the non-profit museum was created by actor Marlon Suson, who
served at Ground Zero as 'Official Photographer' for the Uniformed Firefighter's
Association. Appointed by UFA Manhattan Trustee Rudy Sanfilippo and overseen
by FDNY Chief of Dept. Daniel Nigro, Suson shot arguably the most stunning images ever
recorded from the months that followed 9/11. Dubbed "Rare Photos" by the NY Times,
the images, along with artifacts all have a narration/history programmed into self-guided
listening devices in English, Italian, Spanish & French. Known as the "Biggest Little Museum
in New York" for it's small size but huge story content, the museum was just ranked the
8th most popular attraction in NYC by TripAdvisor.com and has a near perfect 5-star average
(4.8 stars) in customer reviews. Mr. Suson, appointed an FDNY Honorary Battalion Chief by
Commissioner Scoppetta, sometimes sits in and guest-hosts tours at the museum.
Tickets for tours available by calling ZERVE at (212) 209-3370. Tours last 2 hours
and the museum is known as "kid-friendly." No graphic images. Tickets are $25 and
$19 (no tour fee for 9-11 family members) and fees go to keep the museum in operation.
