In lower Manhattan, O’Hara’s Pub serves as a 9/11 memorial

O’Hara’s Pub, at Cedar and Greenwich Streets in Lower Manhattan, is home to roughly 6,000 patches from police and fire departments from across the globe, donated after the terrorist attacks, reports Mike Kelly of the Record. Mike Keane, one of the owners, confesses that they stopped counting the patches.

Every day, tourists from around the world look at O’Hara’s book of photos of the attacks and try to find their hometown among the patches.

On every anniversary of the attacks, the surviving brothers of Daniel McGinley, who was killed in the South Tower, remember him at his favorite bar. After hearing his name at the ceremony, they buy him a beer at O’Hara’s and share it.
