World Trade Center Steel Beam Memorial Sites on Long Island

After the World Trade Center was attacked on September 11, 2001, steel beams recovered from Ground Zero were shipped across the country to stand as solemn reminders of the events that occurred that day, and as memorials for those who lost their lives in the attacks. Over 80 steel beam memorial sites can be found on Long Island at schools, parks, fire departments, and other religious and civic groups.  They are listed as National Memorial Sites, and are meant to be peaceful places for remembrance and reflection.  Each year, many of these locations host annual 9/11 memorial events.

Steel beams from the World Trade Center can neither be bought nor sold.  The steel beams used at these memorials are historically protected, and were donated to various groups which agreed to construct appropriate memorials.  Having these special sites allows for people to honor those who passed away and the first responders who risked their lives within their communities without having to travel to the city. 

Today, one can travel to Lower Manhattan to see the One World Trade Center, also known as the Freedom Tower, which is the tallest building in the nation, but if you are looking to honor and remember those in your area by staying local, there is surely a steel beam memorial nearby.  Here is the complete list of World Trade Center Steel Beam Memorials for Long Island:
