Permanent 9/11 memorial unveiled in Point Lookout, Long Island

The long-desired permanent 9/11 memorial at Point Lookout has been unveiled. Granite plaques display names of those killed in the terrorist attacks and those who have died of World Trade Center-related illnesses, with steel from the World Trade Center and a tiny seedling of the callery pear tree that survived the attacks.

WABC’s Stacey Sager spoke to the family of FDNY Fire Marshal Ronnie Gies about the memorial. He and 189 other Hempstead residents were killed in the attacks.
