Now that the formal 9/11 events are past there are two sites in Mount Kisco that remain and are open to the public.
The first is the 9/11 Memorial built by the Mont Kisco Volunteer Fire Department with the help of donations from businesses and private individuals. The monument consists of two granite towers within a pentagon-shaped bases. The names of the 343 FDNY members who died are listed and also the two individuals from the fire district’s service area who died in the attacks— Michael Berkeley and George Morrell. A ceremony was held Sunday as the just completed memorial was unveiled.
The Mount Kisco Public Library is continuing its exhibit of 9/11 artifacts, “New York Remembers” through mid October.
Here is the release about the show:
As we take time to reflect on the 10th Anniversary of a day none of us will ever forget, let us come together to grieve, to remember, to express our gratitude to those who demonstrated what it is to be a hero, and to pledge ourselves to live in honor of their bravery. In addition to the 9/11 Memorial art exhibit in the Community Room of the Mount Kisco Public Library (curated by noted local artist Alan Reingold), and the interpretive sculpture by Dr. Ezriel Kornel, the Library is proud to present: New York Remembers: Memories and Artifacts of 9/11 On loan from the New York State Museum, courtesy of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo Mayor J. Michael Cindrich and Village Manager Jim Palmer were instrumental in obtaining this remarkable exhibit of a giant,10-foot piece of the exterior aluminum sheathing from the World Trade Center, along with a radio from one of the 103 FDNY vehicles recovered from the site and a license plate from a NYPD vehicle buried under the debris.
