NYPD officers killed by 9/11 illnesses honored in Battery Park

On Friday, the names of 47 NYPD officers who have died from World Trade Center-related illnesses were added to the black walls of the NYPD Fallen Heroes Memorial in Lower Manhattan, reported Kevin Fasick and Daniel Cassady for the NY Post.

Patrick Lynch, the president of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, told the mourners attending, “Sometimes you look at this wall, you realize there are black slates to the right and to the left, and then you think about why. They’re blank because they’re leaving them open for the names that are going to come in the future.”
