RED HOOK - A street sign honoring some Sept. 11 victims in Red Hook is causing a stir among some who have seen it.

The group American Atheists says a street sign honoring firefighters killed in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks is too religious, but many in the neighborhood say "Seven In Heaven Way" is a perfect tribute to the fallen.

Firefighters at Engine 202, Ladder 101 say they don't care what the sign says, as long as the seven colleagues who lost their lives are remembered.
