9/11 memorials in Massachusetts
In August, outside the Salem Fire Headquarters on Layfayette Street, firefighters worked on a memorial to the 9/11 victims. They drilled holes in the top of a granite block where a piece of steel (foreground) from the World Trade Center site will be mounted.
The 3-1/2 -foot piece of steel is the centerpiece of the memorial, honoring the nearly 3,000 people who died 10 years ago in New York, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C.
