Nearly 3,000 flags bearing the names of 9/11 victims will go up in a park near ground zero for the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks.
John Michelotti, a former engineer from Greenwich, Conn., came up with the idea. He says NYC Memorial Field will be open Sept. 8-12.
Only victims' families will have access to the new 9/11 memorial on Sept. 11.
Michelotti wants others to have a place to reflect on the tragic events. The flags will be mounted on 7 1/2-foot poles, low enough for visitors to hold and read the names.
Michelotti has previously displayed several hundred flags in Battery Park.
He says the city parks department has granted a permit for the flags. A message for the agency wasn't immediately returned.
