Annual 9/11 Memorial Ceremony to be held at Postcards
Ceremony to honor those lost 18 years ago as well as the First Responders who perished subsequently due to their work at Ground Zero
Staten Island, NY –Borough President James Oddo will host the 9/11 Memorial Ceremony to remember the Staten Islanders we lost 18 years ago and to pay tribute to those First Responders who have subsequently died from their service at Ground Zero. The annual ceremony, which is open to the public, will take place at the Postcards Memorial on the St. George Esplanade on Wednesday, September 11th at 6:30pm.
The names of brave First Responders are inscribed on a memorial adjacent to the Postcards memorial, the Staten Island 9/11 First Responders Memorial, which was dedicated in 2017.
The ceremony will include a reading of the names of the Staten Islanders who were lost on 9/11, as well as a reading of the names of the First Responders who have perished since that day due to their work at Ground Zero. Special musical selections and a video tribute will honor those we lost due to the tragedy.
“Each year, it is my great honor to host the September 11th Memorial Ceremony,” said Borough President Oddo. “Please join me as we remember those we lost on that fateful day and those who gave their lives as a result of their heroics in the aftermath. I ask all Staten Islanders—including those who did not lose loved ones—to join us to honor their memories and provide support for their families and friends.”
Free parking for the ceremony will be available in the New York Wheel Parking Garage (located next to Richmond County Bank Ballpark at Richmond Terrace and Nicholas Street). Those who wish to attend can also access the Memorial via the walkway adjacent to the ballpark. The Memorial is a short walk from the St. George Ferry Terminal and the Empire Outlets.
