As the city prepares to commemorate the 15th anniversary of 9/11, the NYPD has announced plans for a special parade next Friday to honor the memory of the 23 officers who lost their lives in the attack, and the 99 who passed away from illnesses incurred on 9/11.
The bagpipe-led procession will march from Bowling Green down Battery Place to the NYPD's Police Memorial Wall, where police and government heads will officiate a memorial service. Police expect nearly 1,000 marchers to attend, including some families of police officers who have passed away. This event will not conflict with the 9/11 service held at the 9/11 memorial and museum.
