9/11 flag display in Battery Park

Three thousand flags displaying the names of all of those that died on 9/11 will be installed in Battery Park the week before September 11th.

Rows of banners attached to the flags, known as the “Flags of Honor,” will contain the names of the victims. The flags will line the park on the lawns that surround the Fritz Koenig Sphere.

The five-day initiative, dubbed “NYC Memorial Field,” is meant to provide a gathering place for New Yorkers to pay their respects to the fallen during the 10th anniversary of 9/11. The display will be open to the public and will not require reservations.

“We’re proud to have them displayed at the park,” said Warrie Price, founder and president of the Battery Conservancy, which is sponsoring the event. “It gives a grand sense of physical remembrance of each person.”
