If you would like to attend a special service or memorial event in Brooklyn today in honor of the almost 3,000 people who lost their lives in the World Trade Center on 9/11/2001, several sources have compiled events.

* The Brooklyn Eagle has put together a roundup of interfaith 9/11 remembrance services in Brooklyn Heights. These include Grace Church's annual Sept. 11 Requiem Eucharist on Friday at 7:30 a.m., and Assumption Roman Catholic Church's annual 9-11 Mass of Remembrance for the firemen at the Engine Co. 205/Hook and Ladder 118 firehouse on Middagh Street.

The 10:45 a.m. Mass will honor Fr. Judge and the eight firefighters from Engine 205/Hook & Ladder 118: Captain Martin J. Egan, Lt. Robert Wallace, Lt. Robert Regan, Firefighter Vernon Cherry, FF Leon Smith, FF Joseph Agnello, FF Peter Vega and FF Scott Davidson.

* Bensonhurst Bean details Senator Marty Golden's two 9/11 memorial events in South Brooklyn, the first one in Marine Park, at 6 p.m. and a second vigil at the American Veterans Memorial Pier at 7:30 p.m.  The ceremonies will feature a patriotic program, including a 21-gun salute and a candle lighting vigil.

In addition, neighbors have organized an annual candle lighting vigil at 6:30 p.m. at Bill Brown Playground — also known as Bedford Park.

* On Friday evening, Bargemusic will present a free Memorial Concert. More on this at BHB. 

Across the city, a moment of silence will be observed at 8:46 a.m., the moment when flight 11 hit the north tower of the World Trade Center.
