Returning from the funeral of a brother firefighter, a fire truck from the Gerritsen Avenue firehouse approaches Fillmore Avenue and Marine Parkway where a large flag stretches high above the intersection.
Below is a selection of photographs taken around the Canarsie and Marine Park communities in the days following the World Trade Center tragedy.
These photographs were taken by Neil S. Friedman and Marsha Sereno.

|Sunday bikers stop to look at the memorial display left at the base of the Marine Park flag pole after Friday night's candle light vigil.||This patriotic display was created by Maria Cruz (left) of East 89th Street, her children - Angel, Nicky, Julia (above), Monica, Thomas and Robert - and Marlon, a family friend. Inspired neighborhood children and adults added their own drawings messages, flowers and candles.|
