Six story flag to commemorate September 11 in New York

NEW YORK (CNN) — A six-story U.S. flag is now unfurled in New York at the corner of Hester and Mott Streets to remember the victims of 9/11.

A giant 60-foot by 30-foot flag is displayed on the corner building to honor the people of September 11th and commemorate the attacks at the World Trade Center.

“We do it we don’t want to forget, the damage that was… that we took,” John Sasalinuovo, the building owner said.

John and his wife Denise own the building and started the tradition with some fellow volunteers.

They were mostly strangers before 9/11 and now they’re friends.
