9/11 Lenore Mills Collection
This collection was donated by Villager Lenore Mills. Mills and many of her neighbors and out-of-town volunteers gathered on the corner of Christopher and West Streets in the days and months after 9/11 to cheer on the rescue and recovery workers traveling to and from Ground Zero via the West Side Highway. A dedicated group gathered here every day until the last beam was removed from Ground Zero in May 2002, and on each anniversary of 9/11. This collection documents their volunteer efforts, including a trip the group took to Shanksville, Pennsylvania in 2002.
