On Wednesday, October 11, the long-awaited public memorial to the victims and legacy of the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire will be dedicated at the site of the historic fire in New York City. The Triangle Fire Memorial will be a permanent element on the very building that housed the Triangle Factory, at the corner of Greene Street and Washington Place in Greenwich Village. 

The Memorial will be visible to the public for the first time on Wednesday. Visitors will be presented with a textured, stainless steel “ribbon” twelve feet above the sidewalk, on the building’s southern and eastern facades. The names and ages of the 146 victims are cut into this ribbon and mirrored in a dark reflective panel at hip height.
