Family Viewing room moved from Liberty street to:

The corner of Carlisle and Washington Streets

New York, NY

Hours: 9:00 am until 6:00 pm seven days a week

Dear families,

As most of you know, two rooms have been set aside for quiet reflection for September 11 families in lower Manhattan. One is on the 20th floor of 1 Liberty Plaza and is overseen by the Memorial Foundation. The second has been on several locations at the WTC site. This smaller room has been maintained by the Port Authority (PA). This second room has been important as it has been on the actual site of World Trade Center. And, for families reluctant to go into high-rise buildings, this has provided a ground floor alternative.

This notice concerns this second, smaller room. The Port Authority has been committed to giving us this space for as long as possible. The constraint of ongoing construction continues to be a problem. As a result, the Port Authority can no longer permit this room/trailer on the actual site. But the PA has provided a secured area very close to the site at the corner of Carlisle and Washington, only one block away from the current Liberty Street location.

We all owe Norma Manigan a great deal of gratitude for continuing to advocate for this private space and for having found this new location.

This new space is opened today, December 1, 2008. You may find that your mementos have been rearranged. We did the best we could. We have a small space, and, during the several moves, things were dislodged and some packed for protection in transit. Iíve put it back together. Some papers came loose. These have been put in a clearly marked decorative box. Others were placed wherever we could find space. Some things you should note:

1. There is no room to put up a decorated tree this year. Please contact

Davella May at the Port Authority to retrieve any ornaments you might

want back from previous years. Contact her at: dmay@panynj.gov

or at: 212-435-5552

2. Starting Dec. 1, 2008, the room will be open to families 7 days a week from

9:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.

3. Have a valid ME identification or your loved oneís P or T number to allow entry.

4. Try to keep pictures and articles small. Many large posters and banners obscure photos of other loved ones.

If you bring seasonal flowers, etc., try to remove these after a while to make room for other articles.

5. Those of you who have left large pieces or large books may want to contact Anthony Gardner who might be able

to keep them for the September 11 Education Trust. He can be reached at amg@wtcufg.org. You might also

contact other groups that are archiving September 11, 2001 articles.

May the use of this space give you some degree of connection and peace as we begin another holiday season. If you have any questions, I can be reached at WTCFamiliesforProperBurial@comcast.net.

Thank you,

Diane Horning
