It’s been 17 years since the September 11 terrorist attacks, but for many it feels like just yesterday.
Borough President Eric Adams was joined by families of 9/11 victims and first responders Friday as he placed a wreath outside Borough Hall.
They also honored many of the first responders who lost their lives that day and in the years since from 9/11 related illnesses.
The borough president says he continues to hold this event to ensure that horrific day is never forgotten.
"Longer we move away from a tragic event we have a tendency to forget and if we forget we give room to repeat," says Adams.
He also hung a banner outside Borough Hall honoring the first responders who have passed away.
