COLD SPRING HARBOR, N.Y. – A firehouse on Long Island will be getting a special delivery Wednesday – one of the last pieces of steel from the World Trade Center.

It's being delivered from John F. Kennedy Airport where it was stored.

The steel beam is believed to have come from Tower 1 of the World Trade Center. It is 17 feet long, four-feet wide and it weighs more than 18,000 pounds.

The beam will be escorted to the Town of Huntington Recycling facility on New York Avenue. Units from the PAPD, NYPD, SCPD and NCPD Highway patrols will assist in the transfer.
