A giant American flag attached from a pair of fire department ladder trucks hung over a metal fragment of the New York World Trade Center during this morning’s 9/11 remembrance service near Dodger Stadium.
The ceremony at the Frank Hotchkin Memorial Training Center in the 1700 block of Stadium Way attracted city officials and widespread media attention. But it was far from the only ceremony to honor the memories of those killed in terrorist attacks 17 years ago.
Here are some of the other Eastside 9/11 ceremonies and events that took place today:
