Watch: Beautiful 9/11 Tributes Abound Around the County

Westchester County

Westchester commemorates 19 years since the September 11 attacks with solemn, beautiful imagery and video.

Despite having to limit in-person attendance this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Westchester still made sure to memorialize the lives lost nearly 20 years ago on September 11, 2001.

Since we know a lot of you weren’t able to make it out to see these ceremonies in person, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite posts from local residents and organizations so you can see all the wonderful and moving ways Westchester County marked the day.

Westchester County’s September 11th Memorial at Kensico Dam, “The Rising” by architect Frederic Schwartz, incorporates the names of all of the Westchester residents who perished on 9/11/01, along with the communities in which they lived and a quote about them from their loved ones. These words are engraved along the outside of the memorial’s circular base. Steel rods, like the spokes of a wheel, extend from the base and reach skyward, intertwining. The memorial can be approached from all directions and allows people of all ages and abilities to move through it, as well as meditate in remembrance. ArtsWestchester was honored to participate as advisors to the Westchester County Government for the commission of this powerful sculpture in 2006. . #911memorial #AWpublicart #outdoorart #westchestercounty #westchesterny #westchestercountyny #publicart #lightartist #FredericSchwartz #memorialart #september11 #september11memorial #community #kensicodam #steelsculpture #publicsculpture

Today the Pelham Fire Dept, Village officials, and members of the community honor the memory of those lost on September 11th, 2001. The Town of Pelham lost 10 members of our tight knit community. ⁣ ⁣ Every year we gather at the Pelham 9/11 memorial to honor their memory. This year will be no different than it has been for the past 19 years we will always honor those lost on September 11th. At Pelham Fire HQ we keep the original missing posters displayed in the firehouse as a reminder of those lost that day.  If the bay doors are open please take a minute to stop and reflect. ⁣ ⁣ We remember the 343 members of the FDNY, 23 NYPD Officers, 37 Port Authority Police Officers, the 8 New York City EMTs and Paramedics, 2,977 civilians lost, and those who are continuing to loose the battle daily due to 9/11 related sickness. ⁣ ⁣ 𝘕𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘳 𝘍𝘰𝘳𝘨𝘦𝘵 🇺🇸 #neverforget
