Maspeth, Glendale Remember 9/11 Victims



Through prayers and words of comfort, Maspeth and Glendale residents remembered the nearly 3,000 people killed in the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks at memorial vigils marking the 12th anniversary of the day of infamy. In the top photo, civic leaders joined neighbors from three communities at the Glendale 9/11 Memorial Garden at Dry Harbor Playground on Sunday, Sept. 8 for a ceremony sponsored by the American Day Parade Committee. Below, a firefighter attending last Saturday’s (Sept. 7) vigil at Maspeth Memorial Park salutes the monument decaded to Maspeth residents and firefighters who died at the World Trade Center 12 years ago. Three additional memorial ceremonies took place last night, Wednesday, Sept. 11, in Forest Hills, Middle Village and Woodside, and a fourth is scheduled for tonight, Thursday, Sept. 12, at McManus Memorial Park in Astoria Heights. Photos from those events will be featured in next week’s issue of the Times Newsweekly.
