That should make it easy to find for anyone hoping to pay their respects, plant flags or leave flowers.

The plaque at the base of the tree lists the four Roosevelt Islanders who died in the blast, plus four firefighters from the local water rescue unit who also died that day. ©David Stone/Roosevelt Island Daily
