The FDNY Memorial Wall – Never Forget
On September 11, 2001, 343 members of the New York City Fire Department gave their lives in service of their city. The incredible FDNY Memorial Wall serves as a reminder of their bravery and heroism.
The memorial is located at the FDNY Engine 10, Ladder 10, directly across from the site of the World Trade Center. Emblazoned across the face of the memorial are the words “Dedicated to those who fell and to those who carry on. May we never forget.” Alongside the inscription stands a bas-relief sculpture of the World Trade Center buildings with firefighters on either side. Beneath the scene are the names of the 343 firefighters whose lives are honored at the memorial.
The memorial also pays special tribute to volunteer firefighter, Glenn J. Winuk, who gave his life assisting in the rescue efforts after rushing from his office in New York’s Financial District.
The FDNY Memorial Wall sits in downtown New York and may be freely visited. You can learn more about the wall, and the incredible story of the New York Engine Company 10, on Firehouse 10’s website.
