NEW YORK (WCBS 880) – You don’t have to go to Ground Zero to mark the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

Artifacts from the 2001 terrorist attacks will be on display in 30 cities and towns across the state.

LISTEN: WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell reports 

Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the National September 11 Memorial and Museum announced the sites of the 9/11 exhibits on Wednesday.

The exhibits are called “New York Remembers” and will have artifacts never before seen by the public.

Locations include Stony Brook, White Plains, Suffern, Rockville Center, Mahopac, Poughkeepsie and others.

“We are very proud to team up with the state museum and the governor to create 30 9/11 exhibits across New York,” said 9/11 museum president Joe Daniels.

Daniels says each site will have artifacts and photos telling the story of 9/11.

Governor Cuomo likes the idea.

“The entire state wants to participate,” said Cuomo. “That’s why this effort I think is going to be so constructive.”

The exhibits will be open August 29 through the entire month of September and will be open on September 11.
