Moving September 11th Tribute in Coney Island
Remember and honor the brave responders who selflessly gave their lives to save others on September 11th, 2001. Housed outside of MCU Park, the wall is comprised of three 30 x 12 foot granite walls, laser-engraved with images of the 346 firefighters, 37 Port Authority officers, 23 NYC police officers, 3 NYS officers, 1 fire patrol, first responders, and Sirius, a K-9 rescue dog who tragically lost their lives that day.. Their sacrifice and selflessness inspired millions around the world, like Sol Moglen who conceived the idea for a memorial in Coney Island. Their portraits continue to remind of us of the resilience of New Yorkers and the work these heroes did to keep that resilience alive.
