The city is quietly preparing to move more than 8,000 unidentified body parts to their new resting place in the 9/11 Museum.
“We’re getting ready,” said city Medical Examiner’s Office spokeswoman Julie Bolcer. “We’re planning the move.”
Lee Ielpi, whose firefighter son, Jonathan, died on 9/11, said the remains should be moved in a solemn motorcade “with clergy of all religions to show the world how we treat our dead, murdered on 9/11, with respect and dignity.”
The “remains repository” will be hidden from view behind a wall engraved with a quote by Virgil: “No day shall erase you from the memory of time.” The space will include an ME’s office, to continue DNA-ID efforts, and a family visiting room.
Some 9/11 relatives strongly oppose putting the remains in the museum — which will charge $24 for admission — saying visitors should not have to fork over cash to pay their respects.
