9/11 Memorial Events Guide

September 11. It’s a day we will never forget. A day that brought the nation to a standstill, banded us together and made us stronger. Fourteen years have gone by, but when the date rolls around, it’s impossible not to reflect on where you were, what you were doing, who you were with and how you heard the news of the terrorist attacks. It’s become a day of reflection and memorials around the nation, particularly for Long Islanders who lost friends and family members. If you’re looking for a place to reflect and pay your respects, try one of these local 9/11¬†memorial¬†events.
