Steel recovered from the World Trade Center that has been cut to make memorial crosses sits inside Hanger 17 at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport.  The World Trade Center steel program, operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, is selecting portions of steel beams recovered from the center’s collapsed towers and donating them to cities, towns, firehouses and museums around the U.S. and the world that request the pieces to use in 9/11 memorial sites in time for the 10th anniversary this year of the terrorist attacks.
