Backstory and Context
After Sept. 11, 2001, Sol Moglen rededicated his nonprofit, Ebbets Field Memorial Foundation to the purpose of creating a 9/11 memorial. It first included just first-responders from the Brooklyn area, but was expanded to include firefighters, New York Police Department and Port Authority officers from throughout New York City. Artist Peter Max, actors Gary Sinise and Jon Voight, comedian Jackie Mason, and former Giants coach Jim Fassel were among the contributors to the project.
