FDNY Memorial Wall, New York

At 124 Liberty Street in Manhattan, across from the 9/11 Memorial and World Trade Center site, you’ll find a building known simply as Ten House. This is the home of the New York Fire Department’s Engine Company 10 and Ladder Company 10. Though nearly destroyed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the firehouse was rebuilt. Today it is home to the FDNY Memorial Wall, a 56-foot brass sculpture that honors the 343 New York firefighters who died in the attacks. An inscription reads: ‘Dedicated to those who fell and those who carry on. May we never forget.’

Liberty Street is a street in New York City that stretches east-west from the middle of Lower Manhattan almost to the East River.

A FDNY Firehouse, Engine Co. # 10 and Ladder Co. # 10, is located at 124 Liberty Street, directly across from Ground Zero.
