Erdley, Debra, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg will give opening remarks at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum Tribute Exhibition on Pittsburgh's North Shore at 11 a.m. Sunday.
The traveling exhibit, which tells the story of 9/11 from the perspective of survivors and first responders at the World Trade Center, will be at PNC Park on Mazeroski Way from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The free exhibit includes photographs and artifacts from Ground Zero, as well as a brief film.
Those who attend will have an opportunity to sign two 37-foot- long, 4-ton steel I-beams that will be used in building the memorial.
Pittsburgh is the fourth stop on a 15-city national fundraising tour fashioned after the national tour that helped finance refurbishing of the Statue of Liberty in the 1980s.
Officials said people who plan to attend the event should try to park in Downtown garages to avoid traffic congestion on the North Shore, where the Steelers will host the San Francisco 49ers at 1 p.m. at Heinz Field.

Joe Daniels, president of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, said his group hopes football fans will stop by. …
