On 10th Anniversary, WTC Steel Comes To Tribute Park
Hundreds of locals and family members turned to Tribute Park on Sunday for the annual ceremony honoring those Rockaway residents who died in the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. The steel is two and one-quarter inches thick, 52-inches wide, 14-feet long and weighs approximately 5,300 pounds. It was part of a steel box beam supporting the tridents and one of the main structural steel support beams. It has been at JFK’s Hanger 17 since the attack. For more photos, see pages 34 and 35.
