According to Picture this on Granite:

For this monument, Picture This On Granite (Note: Laser engraving specialists) was proud to help pay tribute and honor the Fire Fighters who risked their lives to save people caught in the September 11 2001 terrorist attacks. Our Graphic designer worked with the committee’s concept to further customize it in a black granite memorial resembling the Twin Towers.

The monument consists of black and gray granite with two 7-foot structures representing the twin towers of the World Trade Center, and a five-sided pool to represent the Pentagon, which was also struck in the terrorist attacks. Further explained on the informational plaques is that the gently swaying grasses in the perimeter garden represents the fields of the Shanksville, PA crash site. The gently flowing fountain waters, represent the continuity of life. The words « Never Forget » are a theme and the names of all the firefighters, as well as two men from the local fire protection district, who lost their lives, are engraved. The steel beam to the left of the monument was recovered from the World Trade Center site.

Groundbreaking was in November 2010; the Mount Kisco monument was completed and dedicated on the 10th anniversary of the attack, Sept 11, 2011.

Taken with an Olympus Stylus Epic/Mju II and Kodak Tri-X 400.
