> Tribute Center Adding More Personal Guided Tours
> of WTC Site to Accommodate Holiday Crowds
> (New York, NY December 22, 2005)-The Tribute Center today announced it
> has scheduled additional official guided tours of the World Trade
> Center site this week, and next, to accommodate the influx of visitors
> into New York City during the holiday season.
> "During this week, we will continue to have our regularly scheduled
> weekday Tribute Center guided tour at 1 p.m. and on Saturday,
> Christmas Eve, we will have two tours available at noon and 2 p.m.
> Beginning Tuesday, December 27 until Saturday, December 31, 2005, we
> will offer visitors the opportunity to reserve one of two tours a day
> at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.," September 11th Families Association CEO
> Jennifer Adams said.
> Led by people who lost loved ones, survivors of the attacks, lower
> Manhattan residents and workers, rescue workers, police, firefighters,
> and volunteers who came to help, the tours offer an overview of what
> happened at the World Trade Center site on February 26, 1993 and
> September 11, 2001, and provides an opportunity for visitors to hear
> their guide's own personal experiences. Currently, there are 52
> official Tribute Center volunteer guides, with a wide variety of
> experiences, trained to conduct tours of the site.
> "Until the World Trade Center Memorial is completed in 2009, these
> tours will provide an important and much-needed service to millions of
> visitors and members of the 9/11 community from Lower Manhattan
> residents to recovery workers, family members and survivors," said
> Tribute Center President Sally Yerkovich.
> "Each tour begins in downtown Manhattan at 120 Liberty Street between
> Church and Greenwich Streets, in front of the future Tribute Center,
> travels around the perimeter of the World Trade Center site, and lasts
> approximately one hour and 15 minutes," Yerkovich said. "Visitors
> should note that tours take place regardless of weather conditions,
> leave promptly at their scheduled time and latecomers cannot be
> guaranteed accommodation."
> "Anyone wishing to reserve a spot on a tour while they are in New York
> should visit www.telecharge.com
> Http://www.telecharge.com/go.aspx?MD=102&PID=3546&AID=OBW000354600
> and click on the "Other Events and Items" link to find the Tribute
> Center Walking Tour reservation area and purchase tickets," Yerkovich
> said. "It's a very simple process to reserve one of 20 spaces per
> tour." The fee for the tour is $10 per person and children under 12
> are admitted free.
> Due to the nature of the tour and potentially graphic discussions
> involved, parents are advised to use discretion when bringing children
> (children must be accompanied by an adult).
> The Tribute Center is a visitor and learning center under construction
> at 120 Liberty Street. When completed in mid-2006, it plans to offer
> exhibitions, tours, public programs and publications. The Center is
> also seeking more volunteers for its tour guide program, particularly
> those who are multi-national, speak one or more languages, and worked
> in or around the World Trade Center.
> The Tribute Center, which is funded in part by a grant from the Lower
> Manhattan Development Corporation, is a project of the September 11th
> Families Association. The non-profit was founded in November 2001 to
> advocate for 9/11 victims and their families.
> For additional information about the September 11th Families
> Association Tribute Center, to volunteer or to support the grand
> opening, please call 212-422-3520, email info@tributenyc.org or visit
