Starting today, Century 21 Department Store located in Downtown Manhattan will use their store windows to display photos taken by over a hundred NYC children for the 91111 Moving Forward project which exemplifies the value of moving forward and diversity. The photos were taken as a way of commemorating the 10th anniversary year of 9/11.

Additionally, children from across the city can select the photos that best reflect the project’s themes by entering a contest online at By so doing, they become eligible to win prizes.

According to Dr. Tom Riedl, the founder of 91111 Moving Forward, “The project is a way to focus the city’s young on some important and positive messages related to 9/11. The project has already achieved this with all the photos the kids have taken.” Riedl continues, “And still more kids – hopefully lots of them – will be thinking about these themes as they vote on the photo artwork of the photographers. We believe this will benefit all of them in this special year.”

Century 21 CEO Raymond Gindi adds, “We are very excited and proud to display a project that allows children the opportunity to express their emotions about 9/11 through art and photography in a more positive way.”

The photos will be displayed on the Cortlandt street entrance, during Century 21’s normal business hours (7:45 am - 9 pm weekdays; 10 am - 9 pm Saturday; 11 am - 8 pm Sunday).
