Friday, August 21, 2009

The Port Authority says the 58-ton, 36-foot tall column will become part of the planned memorial and museum. It is currently in a hangar at JFK Airport. Dubbed the "Last Column," it became a makeshift memorial adorned with firehouse patches, police logos and union stickers.
