Description
The FDNY Memorial Wall at the 10 House was created to recall and to honor the valor and determination of the 343 members of the New York City fire department who on September 11, 2001, sacrificed their lives in order to try to save the lives of thousands of others and to recognize the burden that surviving firefighters, world-wide, continue to carry. The complex narrative of this bronze, fifty-six foot long and six foot high, low-relief work reflects the technical and organizational challenges that faced fire department members in trying to come to grips with the enormity, the cruelty of the two collapsing towers containing their millions of tons of materials and many thousands of human beings. • The memorial’s design and fabrication team, working closely with fire department leaders and members, was led by the Rambusch Company, Jersey City, New Jersey; designer and project manager Viggo Rambusch headed up the group while sculptor Joseph Petrovics and delineator Joseph Oddi furthered the Rambusch conceptual, design, artistic and fabrication efforts. • Holland & Knight Charitable Foundation, Inc., established the New York City Firefighter Memorial Wall Fund on behalf of Glenn J. Winuk, a Holland & Knight partner who was also a Long Island, New York, firefighter. On that clear Tuesday morning, he hurried from his nearby law office to the collapsing towers to try to help others; he lost his life in that trying. • Situated at the corner of Greenwich and Liberty Streets, New York, New York, the memorial is attached to the side of the building known popularly as the Ten House (Engine 10, Ladder 10). • The memorial was dedicated June 10, 2006.
