Artifacts from 9/11 have been stored in a hangar at JFK airport since 2002– some 2,500 items, including 1,900 pieces of steel. At this point, most of them have been distributed to all the states and 10 countries to be used for memorials.
Now the Port Authority is looking to pass along what’s left.
Nonprofit organizations or government entities that wish to receive artifacts must be vetted by the Port Authority. The pieces must be displayed on a site with public access.
