Although known for exhibits on subjects as ancient as the life of founding father Alexander Hamilton - which is on view through Feb. 13 - the New York Historical Society’s latest exhibition, "The Rescue," recalls the very recent attacks on the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.

The focus of the multi-media exhibit, on display through Jan. 9, is the role that Bedford-Stuyvesant’s Rescue 2, one of the New York Fire Department’s elite units, played that day. Among the artifacts on display, salvaged from the Fresh Kills landfill by the curators, is the rear door of Rescue 2’s rig (pictured), which was demolished when the towers collapsed.

The New York Historical Society is located at 170 Central Park West at 77th Street in Manhattan. Admission is $10, $5 teachers, students and seniors, free for children under 12. For more information, call (212) 873-3400.
