36" solid bronze plaque donated to the Oyster Bay Lions Club by FIW. Fabricated as part of their efforts to revitalize and beautify the Historic area of Beekman Beach.
Forest Iron Works was honored and humbled when we were asked to assemble a 9/11 memorial using actual steel beams recovered from Ground Zero.
Guidelines for working with 9/11 steel fragments prohibit any significant alterations to the metal. This particular piece was recovered twisted into the shape of an awareness ribbon. Our artisans took great care to fabricate a memorial display it in the most reverent manner possible
Communities all across our region were affected by 9/11. Forest Iron Works was excited to participate in the fabrication of this monument at the North Shore High School so that future generations can comprehend the loss of innocent life and sacrifices of heroes on that terrible day.
Even when authentic raw materials are not available, many of the communities throughout our region have erected their own memorials. Forest Iron Works collaborated with Cosmo Tile and Stone on the fabrication and installation of these solid stone Twin Towers, located directly behind the Locust Valley Post Office.
Two of four exhibit pieces we fabricated for Long Island Traditions & The Village of Freeport to help educate visitors on the history of maritime culture on the Nautical Mile.

This bell , originally displayed on top of Nobmans Hardware store in the center of Oyster Bay , was removed in 2005 when a fire devastated the corner store. Forest Iron Works was proud to be a part of the relocating and mounting of this bell at its new home at the Oyster Bay Historical Society where it now provides a physical link to the town's historic earlier days.
