Chelsea Jeans, a retail store turned September 11th artifact and shrine, closed forever on October 26, 2002. Owner David Cohen entrusted the New York Historical Society with preserving the Chelsea Jeans Memorial, as the 50 square feet of retail space became known to the thousands who filed past the glass-encased time capsule, as a place of pilgrimage for those visiting ground zero. A spontaneous memorial to all victims of the World Trade Center tragedy and a symbol of the still-unfolding aftermath of the terrorist attack, the Chelsea Jeans Memorial will serve as the focal point of this exhibition.
