Over at JFK Airport, a hangar is holding something besides planes: steel and salvaged objects from the World Trade Center.
Some of the steel is being turned into crosses, as shown above, for memorial shrines around the country, as we approach the 10-year anniversary this September.
Details, from MSNBC:
It’s pretty amazing to see what was saved from the World Trade Center site.
The World Trade Center steel program, a program operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, is selecting portions of the steel recovered from the World Trade Center and donating it to cities, towns, firehouses and museums around the U.S. and the world who request it for use in 911 memorial sites in time for the 10 year anniversary of the 2001 attacks.Hangar 17 at Kennedy Airport houses the collection of steel, a fire truck, a rail car and other artifacts.
