Along with tower managing partner Ralph Isenberg’s collection of 9/11-related art, the tower currently has on display a JFK exhibit.

“John F. Kennedy: A Community Remembers” includes an artist’s proof of a bronze bust from the Kennedy Presidential Library, a replica of Kennedy’s rocking chair, campaign materials, newspapers and other memorabilia.

The free exhibit is open to the public and on display through mid December.
