Video: Steel From Attacks on World Trade Center on Display at Hunterdon Central High School


RARITAN TWP. – The story of how steel from the 9-11 attacks on the World Trade Center made its journey from downtown Manhattan to Hunterdon Central High School is a lesson in both failure and success. The school was not originally the intended destination for the artifact, but those featured in the video explain why the school is the best place for it.


This video – produced by the school – offers detail not included in Tap into Flemington-Raritan's original article. It includes comments from Hunterdon Central High School Superintendent Chris Steffner, as well as two community members who helped made it happen: Hunterdon Central Social Studies teacher David Berger and Rob McGeary, a Franklin Twp. (Hunterdon County) attorney.

The video runs 3:25. The poem at the end was written by McGeary.
