Over the years, @panynj has distributed 1,890 pieces of the twin towers' steel and 550 other objects to the @911memorial and the @nysmuseum in Albany, as well as institutions and organizations around the world. About 50 unclaimed items include the remains of a vehicle, pictured here in a photo by photographer Johnny Milano (@grief)." By nytimes on Instagram.
