Having left a small American Flag attached to this memorial last 9-11 & finding it has been removed I am less than pleased with whomever it was that liberated that flag. Otherwise the memorial is pretty awesome aside from not having any annual memorial service...More

Its an ugly piece of twisted steel from the Twin Towers. 9/11 was an ugly event. If you see it next to City Hall, it may be worth your time to stop briefly and say a prayer for those lost on 911.

This is a nice (small) memorial that has meaning to locals, but not likely something a visitor would be happy they came across town to see.

Thank you Quincy for having such a amazing piece of history here from the Twin Towers after 9/11. Touched me right in the Feeler!

This was part of the transmitters that were on top of one of the Twin Towers that were destroyed on 9/11. Two companies in Quincy had their wares in there.

It is a stark reminder, an artifact that you can touch and experience. If you are in Quincy do stop and see it. Worth the experience
