Garden City’s wounds linger 15 years after 9/11

455 residents of Nassau and Suffolk Counties were killed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, reports Martin C. Evans, in Newsday.

Garden City, a small town of  23,000 people, lost 23 of its residents in the attacks.

‘“I think Garden City stands out in the scope of its grief,” said the Rev. James P. Swiader, who for the past five years has been assigned to St. Joseph’s. “So many of those who were killed were young fathers and newly married who left young children behind. 9/11 is still a very big part of the life of this community.”’
