09/10/13 153 W, 1 I - + 2 - 2 Wilmington Firefighters Memorial Dedication, Wednesday, September 11

The Wilmington Firefighters Memorial will be dedicated tomorrow at 6:00 p.m. The memorial is located at Station 2, at 3403 Park Avenue at Empie Park. The station opened last year on the site of a former fire station. The memorial has been constructed to honor the seven city firefighters who have died in the line of duty, and the 343 firefighters of New York City who perished on September 11, 2001. Its centerpiece is a steel artifact recovered from the rubble of the World Trade Center. Firefighters have been working around the clock, getting the site ready for tomorrow. The project still needs money. They're about $25,000 short on the total funds required. Pavers (walkway sections inscribed with text) can still be purchased on the memorial web site. Or see their Facebook page for the latest updates and photos. Here's an artist's rendering of the site:
