New York sends a positive message on the 9/11 anniversary


On the 20th anniversary of 9/11 and in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic, New York wants to remind the world that it remains a vibrant tourism destination. 

NNYC & Company - the official destination marketing organization and convention and visitors bureau for the five boroughs of New York City - said the Big Apple continues to show its resilience and perseverance to the world.

"On this historic anniversary, we honour the lives of the victims, their families and the survivors of the 9/11 attacks," the company said in a statement. 

"We honour the efforts of the first responders who heeded the call and the many who sacrificed their lives in the process. We also honour the recovery workers who stood our city back up in the weeks and months that followed. We will never forget the collective and extraordinary heroism and selflessness.  

In collaboration with the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, NYC & Company has partnered with the City's arts and cultural community to promote five-borough programming commemorating the anniversary.

Additionally, NYC & Company collaborated with the Museum on a 'Tribute of Lights' from dusk on September 11 to dawn on September 12. 

As we look ahead, we do so with a '9/12' spirit of hope and compassion for our shared future. And a "reminder of lessons learned and reinforced, chief among them—New York City always endures and rebounds stronger.”
