WTC Victims' Families Want Monument At Fresh Kills Landfill

Date: October 17, 2002

Some families of the World Trade Center victims want a national memorial put atop the landfill where debris was combed for the remains of their loved ones. U.S. Rep. Vito Fossella plans to introduce a bill next month that would designate a portion of the Fresh Kills Landfill on Staten Island as a memorial to the nearly 2,800 people killed in last year's attack. Under the proposal, the land would be transferred to the federal government and managed by the National Park Service. Workers sifted through 1.62 million tons of debris for 10 months at the 160-acre site. The Fresh Kills landfill was reopened the day after the attack to handle the massive excavation project.
