Steel for 9/11 memorial arrives in Yorktown
Ambitious officials in Yorktown say they hope to have their Sept. 11 memorial conceptualized, funded and erected in time for the upcoming 10-year anniversary of the terrorist attacks.
Two 450-pound steel beams, each some 4 feet in length, were transported from Hangar 17 at John F. Kennedy International Airport today by a Mohegan Fire Department pickup truck, also escorted by fellow firefighters and Yorktown police officers.
Mohegan Lake fire officials had put in their request for the steel beams nearly two years ago. Officials say the beams will be stored at the Jefferson Valley Fire Department until definite plans for a memorial are made.
