Brooklyn Wall of Remembrance May 2003
The memorial wall, located on the west side of KeySpan Park, the home of the Brooklyn Cyclones (minor league baseball team), contains a granite plaque with the name and photograph of each of the fallen firemen. The centerpiece of the wall is a 6-foot bronze statue, sculpted by Jamie Lester, of two Brooklyn firefighters, who survived, holding the helmet of a fallen brother who died when the North Tower of the World Trade Center collapsed.
A small bronze tablet at the bottom left of the wall reads: "This wall is dedicated to honoring the 115 fallen firefighters from Brooklyn firehouses who gave the ultimate sacrifice on September 11, 2001."
Of the 343 firefighters who died fifteen months ago, more than a third worked at Brooklyn firehouses.
