Landscaping Completes Memorial Complex

With its official opening set for this Sunday, November 12, the final step in the completion of the memorial to those who died when American Airlines Flight 587 crashed into Belle Harbor five years took place last week with the placement of trees and other landscaping onto the Beach 116 Street site. Pictured, large trees are lowered onto the site.

Workmen struggle to get the large trees in place. The memorial service, hosted by Mayor Michael Bloomberg, will take place at approximately 9 a.m. this Sunday.
