A 7 foot steel memorial to the fallen heroes of 9/11 will be unveiled Saturday at the opening of the Niagara Falls Air Show before touring military bases throughout the United States. The stainless steel memorial features the names of every victim of the terrorist attack engraved in the base of the structure, with three steel erections meant to evoke the towers themselves as well as the date of the attack. The structure was created by Steel Crazy Iron Art in Buffalo at the request of Colonel Mark Murphy, Base Commander of Niagara Falls Air Base. It took over 400 hours and 1200 pounds of steel to complete. The Thunder of Niagara Airshow is this weekend and free to the public.

The event will also pay tribute to our fallen heroes and victims of 9/11.
Did you know that wisteria vines can live as long as a human, and sometimes longer? This vigorous plant thrives on biannual pruning, once in summer and once at the end of winter, to produce a glorious spring display. On Wednesday, Central Park Conservancy staff members Luis Vanderlinder and William Quansah gave this century-old vine on the Wisteria Pergola above the Naumburg Bandshell its annual winter pruning. Once it blooms, we'll post pictures again so you can see how beautiful it looks!
