“Our community was one of the hardest hit by the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001,” said Brannan. “In Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights alone, we’ve renamed close to 30 streets in honor of neighbors who were killed that day.”

“It is fitting and proper that we pause on 9/11 to reflect on the heartbreak and grief of that day,” said Gounardes. “Together, as a community, we come together to remember and mourn.”
