Memorial For Victim of Flight 587

From El Diario
April 9, 2002

By Juan Soto Bouzas

New York City authorities and the families of the victims of American Airlines flight 587 have begun the process of building at least two local monuments in memory of those who died in the plane crash.

In addition, a church will be built in Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic, in honor of those who lost their lives in the fatal flight last November 12.

The paperwork has just begun. "The state as well as the city will meet with the families to determine what would be the best memorial for the victims of this catastrophe," said Governor Pataki.

Although the specific sites for the memorials have not been secured, one will be in the area of Queens where the American Airlines plane crash, causing the deaths of 260 people on board and 5 more on the ground; the second will be on 207th Street in Washington Heights, and the third on a field in the Dominican capital.
