View 194: Baldwinsville 9/11 Memorial

Baldwinsville 9/11 Memorial in Baldwinsville, New York.

Baldwinsville 9/11 Memorial in Baldwinsville, New York. The column on the left is 9 feet tall, the other is 11 feet tall.

Volunteers of the Baldwinsville Fire Department were getting ready for the dedication ceremony of their 9/11 Memorial when I visited the memorial the night before on September 10, 2011.  The bouquet of flowers left by someone earlier was fitting in the quiet of the evening after sunset.

  1. Wow, freaky; kind of brings things home, doesn’t it?

    • I never would have imagined beams for a destroyed building would hold such meaning until 10 years ago. I am glad I went the night before as the ceremony looked over crowded. It’s over by our first house. Not the greatest of locations but one the department owns.

    I heard that some beams were brought to the city near here too – Springfield.
    Is this one of your HDR photos? It has a certain eerie feeling to it.

  3. This is so much better than the ugly memorial our city put up. I didn’t even bother to go and take pictures. Doesn’t look like it’s permanent either (at least I hope it’s not! Yup, that bad!)

    The scene looks eerie, and very appropriate for the occasion.
