St Francis of Assisi-9-11 Memorial-Fragments-Midtown-NYC

Untapped Cities reader g1g1_nyc  pointed us out to these little known 9/11 Memorials inside the Church of St. Francis of Assisi on 31st Street between 6th and 7th Avenue. Three pieces of steel recovered from the World Trade Center site are displayed in front of a stained glass window (shown below) commemorating those lost, which included Friar Michael Judge, chaplain of the FDNY and Carol LaPlante, a secular Franciscan.
