9/11 Memorial

A piece of the World Trade Center South Tower is at the Los Angeles Fire Department Frank Hotchkin Memorial Training Center near Dodger Stadium. It is a tribute to the 343 New York firefighters who perished on September 11, 2001. The vertical piece on display was a support between the lobby and 2nd floor of the South Tower and has remnants of concrete that supported the offices on the 2nd floor.
