FDNY motorcycle club commemorates 9/11 anniversary with ride
NEW YORK -- New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and singer Billy Joel paid tribute to victims of 9/11 with a commemorative ride to ground zero with members of the FDNY motorcycle club.
Cuomo rode his custom black Harley-Davidson, while Joel was on a blue-and-white Drifter.
They were joined by motorcycle designer Paul Teutel Jr., Joe Daniels, president of the National September 11 Memorial and Museum, and dozens of members of the Fire Department of New York Motorcycle Club.
The riders gathered at a firehouse on West 43rd Street and then headed down the West Side Highway to the World Trade Center site for the 12th anniversary of the terrorist attacks.
