Teaser Image

Steel beam with numbers of victims

A worker passes by a 58-ton steel beam, the last remaining beam from the World Trade Center's South Tower. The beam was spray-painted with the numbers of first responders lost in the attacks: 37 Port Authority police, 23 New York police officers, and 343 New York firefighters. Other firefighters have painted their engine and ladder companies' numbers on the beam.
