Ground Zero exhibit highlights transit worker's efforts

Posted on April 28, 2008

When two hijacked jets struck the World Trade Center on 9/11, Chief Regional Supervisor Fred Rubenstein was less than two blocks away.

Rubenstein — who was employed by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority of New York at the time — was involved in the rescue effort that transported many innocent people to safety.

This past November, he recounted his story for the World Trade Center Tribute Organization, to become part of its current exhibit, “Inside the Fence,” which documents the heroic efforts of blue-collar construction, sanitation and transportation workers who stood up when the towers fell.

“Inside the Fence” features photographs as well as personal photo albums from people who worked at Ground Zero. It includes a rotating group of six oral histories, which features Rubinstein, detailing both daunting challenges and unique collaborations during the nine months of recovery. The exhibit will be displayed until June 9 at The Tribute World Trade Center Visitor Center at 120 Liberty Street in Lower Manhattan.

NJ TRANSIT employees will be admitted for no charge if they show their company ID.
