NEW YORK, Aug. 10 (Xinhua) -- The "New York Remembers" 9/11 exhibitions will be held across the New York State of the U.S. later this month to mark the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, which killed over 3,000 people.

This was announced at a press conference here on Wednesday by New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, the New York State Museum and the National Sept. 11 Memorial & Museum.

The exhibitions, which are to be held from Aug. 29 to the end of Sept., will be displayed in 30 locations across the state, which has a population of 8.2 million.

The exhibitions, the largest about 9/11, include the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the New York Police Department ( NYPD), recovered hundreds and thousands pieces of personal property, the Official Fire Department City of New York (FDNY) truck and the pieces of the two airplanes that crashed into the World Trade Center. The exhibitions also include hundreds of photographs, interviews, and films.

"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 September 11th and to embrace the spirit of unity that brought us together on that day of devastating tragedy," Cuomo said at the press conference.

On the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, terrorists hijacked passenger planes and crashed them into World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon in Northern Virginia and Shanksville.
