BROOKLYN - The borough came together Sunday night for a candlelight vigil to honor those affected by the Boston Marathon bombings.

James Murray, former NYPD officer and Sept. 11 first responder, says Boston was there for New York City during 9/11 and now it's the city's turn to salute them.

Congressman Michael Grimm organized the gathering. He
and other elected officials joined community members, and echoed the importance of all Americans standing together and staying strong.
