Portion of World Trade Center South Tower coming to Sarasota

Portion of World Trade Center South Tower coming to Sarasota

Sarasota, FL - Sarasota's newest police headquarters will soon be home to a powerful relic from the World Trade Center's South Tower - a steel beam that once supported the 90th, 91st, and 92nd floors of the building. This monument to the lives lost during the historic attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 stands 36 feet tall and weighs over 10 tons.

The slab of the building's infrastructure will travel from New York City and be placed facing Payne Park from the police station's southeast corner, where officers are delighted to host such a significant memorial with real meaning.

The massive monument will be a small piece of history Sarasota can call its own. It is set to be transported and unveiled sometime before the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11 next year.
