A ceremony was held at Eisenhower Park Monday to remember the Nassau County residents killed on 9/11.
Family and friends read the 349 names during the ceremony.
Susan Hutchins, whose 25-year-old died in the South Tower, says it's important for people to show up for these ceremonies.
There's still over 2,000 body parts being tested, and people don't get this and don't understand this," says Hutchins. "That's why it's important for everyone to show up for these ceremonies, say these names, and remember them."
The ceremony also featured international tenor Christopher Macchio.
"I really hope they remember the sense of togetherness we all experienced in the immediate aftermath of 9/11, and we can choose to return that united spirit," says Macchio.
