Here are some interactive photos from the NY Times, with narration, of artifacts from the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center towers. The distinctive steel tridents are recognizable from the fascade of the towers.

Steven Weintraub, a consultant to the Port Authority on the preservation of 9/11 artifacts, and Jan Ramirez, the Chief Curator and Director of Collections of the National September 11 Memorial and Museum, describe artifacts from the World Trade Center now held in an 80,000-square-foot hangar at Kennedy Airport. The museum is to open in 2012.
