DOUG BENZ/NEWS North Tonawanda will now have two pieces of the World Trade Center within its borders after a local WWII veteran who obtained an I-beam from the wreckage of the site and Ascension Industries worked together to design a memorial, now in place at city hall. A 44-star flag that once flew over the city and discovered in city hall's vaults recently is also incorporated into the tribute to rescue workers. The city obtained another piece of the Twin Towers last year and will install an outdoor memorial at the North Tonawanda Fire Department this summer with the help of two high school students who created the design.
