New Bensonhurst 9/11 Memorial (with slideshow)

A member of the Knights of Columbus Fourth Degree pauses for a moment of silence at a new memorial for the victims of 9/11 at St. Athanasius Church, Bensonhurst. The shrine was dedicated in memory of parishioners John Frank Rizzo and Paul Silvio Giallombardo. Members of the Msgr. Cafiero Council of the K. of C. were instrumental in securing the piece of a steel from the World Trade Center that is the centerpiece of the site.
