A World Trade Center steel beam that became a makeshift memorial after the 9/11 terrorist attacks will be returning to the site on Monday, after more than seven years in storage. 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.
