9/11 beam arrives in Mt. Kisco for memorial
A piece of flag-draped steel from the World Trade Center arrived in Mount Kisco yesterday where it will find a new home in a 9/11 memorial there.
The steel was escorted from Kennedy airport, where it has been stored since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, by a procession of emergency vehicles. The steel was donated by the Port Authority, and will eventually become part of a memorial that will be placed next to city hall.
Danielle Churchill, a local businesswoman, says that she felt compelled to donate $25,000 to the project in the hopes that other donors will come forward and contribute to the memorial, which will be dedicated on the 10-year anniversary of the terrorist attack.
