5. 9/11 Museum informational marker
“This steel t-beam was one of several found within the rubble of Building Six of the World Trade Center two days after September 11, 2001. Almost immediately, it became a symbol of hope, faith and healing for many rescue and recovery workers searching the World Trace Center site for the remains of thousands who perished in the terrorist attack. • The World Trade Center cross will be housed in the National September 11 Memorial Museum, as a testament to spiritual renewal in the face of tragedy and loss.”
