    Officials view 9/11 artifacts as they announce locations that will display them across the state as part of the anniversary commemoration.

    This September, ground zero won’t be the only place New Yorkers can honor those who lost their lives on 9/11.

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Tuesday the locations for 30 “New York Remembers” exhibitions of artifacts from the attacks. They're being organized as part of a statewide recognition of the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

    The exhibitions will showcase historical artifacts from the collections of the State Museum and National September 11 Memorial & Museum.

    Many of the artifacts being featured have never been shown to the public, including damaged emergency vehicles, aluminum and glass from the buildings and airplane fragments.

    "These exhibitions will give New Yorkers in towns, villages, and cities all across the state a gathering place to once again stand as one community to make sure we never forget those who lost their lives on Sept. 11," Cuomo said in a statement.

    The exhibitions will open during the week of Aug. 29 and continue until the end of September. All locations will be open on Sunday, Sept. 11.
