SOA Chairman Peter Parente Speaks With Steve MalzburgOctober 1, 2010
Peter Parente, chair of the Save Our Armory Committee will talk
about his role in removing the plane wreckage from the proposed site of an Islamic Center and Mosque in lower Manhattan.
Parente will recount his story, first published by Talk of the Sound, of how he pulled the plane wreckage from Flight 175 out of the building at the center of the controversy over the proposed site of an Islamic Center and Mosque.
In the days following the attacks of 9/11, a crew of workers that included Peter arrived at 45-47 Park Place in Manhattan. Their job was to remove a piece of one of the airliners that crashed through the roof of the building where the proposed Mosque is slated.
