Broome Residents Remember 9/11

Eleven years after the World Trade Center’s twin towers collapsed, a ten-foot section of a steel I-beam from one of the 110-story buildings has arrived at Endwell’s Highland Park.

Many Broome County residents lined Hooper Road late Tuesday afternoon for the procession in which the beam was moved from the Country Club Road fire station to the park’s Remembrance Garden.

The artifact was escorted by firefighters from several local departments and vehicles from area police agencies.

A candlelight vigil was held after the beam arrived at the town of Union park.

The beam is to be part of a monument that’s to be constructed at the site.

The project is expected to be completed in about a year.
