  • This memorial is a wonderful tribute to the firemen in the aftermath of 911 attack. It has captured the soul and essence of all that perished on that tragic day. A lot of planning and design has gone....  more »
  • Interesting monumental architecture on Riverside Drive. Worth visiting as part of a walk in Riverside Park.  more »

  • I just happened to come across this memorial. Never knew it was here and with my affiliation with a volunteer fire department it was nice to see. Although the monument appears to have been built (dedicated I suppose), in 1912, the monument is in beautiful shape and seems well cared for. Although it does not specifically mention it on the monument, I suspect they built this monument as a tribute, in part, to the firefighters who were tasked with fighting the Triangle Shirtwaist fire of 1911 (a year earlier) .... although I believe the site of that fire has its own plaque honoring the victims of that fire at the location of that fire. Definitely worth a visit to this monument, at this location. It is tranquil and has seating and a fountain which makes it nice to sit there and take it all in.
  • It is good place to sit and read. The monument itself is a work of art
