NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - In a solemn ceremony Friday, the names of 22 firefighters were added to the FDNY World Trade Center Memorial Wall in downtown Brooklyn.
It's a tribute to firefighters who worked on rescue and recovery efforts at Ground Zero after the World Trade Center Towers collapsed.
"In many ways, it remains inconceivable that now, 18 years later, we're still losing our loved ones because of the attacks of that day," said FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro.
