Flier for the event "Musical Memorial Critical Mass" for bicyclists and skaters on September 28, 2001, at Union Square South.
By late afternoon on September 11, 2001, the urge to mourn alongside others brought people together throughout New York City and across the country. In the days that followed, people gathered to hold vigils on college campuses, in parks and town halls, in places of worship, and elsewhere. For weeks after, events were organized to bring people together in a spirit of community support and healing.
