Please join Lower Manhattan residents and New Yorker’s for an evening of hope, healing, storytelling and connecting on Sunday, September 8th.
Eighteen years after the day that changed the world forever come the stories of 9/11 survivors and first responders who spent years literally living through the aftermath. and rebuilding their lives within the downtown community. As Lower Manhattan continues to rebuild and flourish, we stop to reflect and go back in time to the days, weeks, and months following September 11th as we look forward to how the community now known as the Seaport District, along with Tribeca and Battery Park, has found new life amidst its revitalization.
The event will begin with a 60-minute moderated conversation, followed by audience Q&A and a reception hosted by The Howard Hughes Corporation providing time to socialize, enjoy food and drinks, and share experiences that define our Lower Manhattan community.
