Central Park Terror Victim Memorial Cancelled

NEW YORK (AP) - A Central Park memorial this weekend to the police and
firefighters who died heroically at the World Trade Center - a gathering
that was expected to draw as many as a million people - will not take place,
city officials said.
The city Parks Department did not immediately say why the memorial would not
be held. It had been organized by a committee that includes former Mayors
David Dinkins and Edward Koch and leading Protestant, Jewish, Muslim and
Catholic clergy.
``There is not an event going on in Central Park this weekend,'' said Parks
Department spokesman Jeff Sandgrund. ``We're not organizing an event in
Central Park.''
The cancellation was news to a city that was still jittery, eight days after
two planes hijacked by terrorists laid waste to the Trade Center and killed
more than 5,000 people.
