On September 11, 2001, our nation was attacked by terrorists.
More than 3,000 innocent people were killed who were coworkers, friends and family members.

While it was mostly Americans who were killed in this horrific attack, there were also 327 foreign nationals.To all of us, they were heroes.

We shared the pain of watching the twin towers fall. We all knew in that moment that our lives had been changed forever.

We also witnessed the courageous acts of the FDNY, NYPD, NY/NJ Port Authority Police and EMS individuals in the face of these unspeakable horrors risking their lives to save others.

That courage and heroism continues for all those fighting the war on terror today.

 A Lasting Remembrance to Honor Our Heroes ...

 The 9/11 Victims and Fallen Military Heroes Memorial is intended to remind visitors to the Memorial of the impact of the events of September 11, 2001 on the citizens of this country and the extraordinary civic response that grew from this contemporary historic event.

The 14-foot 4,000+ pound steel beam recovered from the destroyed World Trade Center buildings (that took the brunt of the 9/11 attacks), anchors the monument and is the centerpiece of the memorial. It is surrounded by a pentagonal shaped black granite base that honors
 the names of those lost.
