Bayside will never forget.

Beneath the setting sun, dozens gathered in Bayside Hills at Bell Boulevard and the Horace Harding Expressway to commemorate the 16th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks with song, reflection and prayer.

Representatives of local Police and Fire Departments, scout troops, civic associations, religious leaders, elected officials and residents were among the participants.

“It’s events like this that truly signify what Queens stands for,” Queens Borough President Melinda Katz said. “It’s about families. It’s about remembering our fallen … It’s about honoring our first responders, our Police Department, our Fire Department, our EMS — everyone who runs into the building, into danger, when everyone else is running out.”

The annual event was organized by the Bayside Hills Civic Association (BHCA). See more photos from the remembrance below.
