Today, New York City is thriving. Our population is growing and the city is adding new jobs. In re- sponse to the attacks, New York City has been a national leader in implementing more stringent building safety requirements. These include wider emergency exit stairs to make evacuations quicker, the installation of photoluminescent strips to make building evacuations safer and the full sprinklerization of office buildings to better safeguard property and protect lives.
In the spirit of the fellowship and unity that brought New York together in the wake of the September 11 attacks, Community Board 1 invites you to join us for Hand in Hand -- Remembering 9/11 as we stand together to show our resilience, unity and remembrance.
On Saturday, September 10th, 2011 at 8:46am, we will commemorate the 10 year anniversary of the September 11th attacks, when thousands of people will grasp hands to form a human chain along the waterfront from the tip of Lower Manhattan heading north.
