The National Sept. 11 Memorial is a tribute to honoring the memory of the nearly 3,000 people killed in the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks at the World Trade Center, at the crash site of Flight 93 in Shanksville, and at the Pentagon in addition to the six people killed in the Feb. 26, 1993 World Trade Center bombing. The memorial is located at the site of the former World Trade Center complex and occupies eight of the 16 acres at the site.
This FDNY Ladder Company 3 fire truck is among one of the many haunting displays inside the 9/11 Memorial Museum in New York City. All 11 responding firefighters from FDNY Ladder Company 3 were killed on Sept. 11 as they aided in evacuating civilians from the North Tower. Many of the firefighters had just gone off duty after completing their overnight shifts. It is reported the firefighters had reached the 35th floor. The truck was damaged beyond repair with its front cab completely destroyed in the collapse. The fire company is located in Manhattan's East Village where a bumper and back door panel of the truck are displayed.
