WTC History: Remembering Little Syria, a Forgotten Manhattan Neighborhood
From the 1880s to 1940s, a community of mostly Arab Americans thrived in a Lower Manhattan neighborhood that would later be the site of the World Trade Center.
Iconic Ground Zero Flag Donated to 9/11 Memorial Museum.
The iconic American flag three New York City firefighters raised above World Trade Center rubble on 9/11 that later disappeared has been recovered and donated to the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. The historic flag is now on display at the 9/11 Memorial Museum in commemoration of the 15th anniversary of the attacks.
With the help of the flag’s original owner, Shirley Dreifus, in honor of her late husband Spiros E. Kopelakis, and in cooperation with Chubb, the global insurance company, the flag was donated to the Museum. The authenticity of the flag was determined through a months-long forensic investigation.
