THE BRONX - On the eve of the 10-year anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, state Sen. Jeff Klein (D-The Bronx) hosted a barbecue in honor of local first responders.

About 100 Sept. 11 first responders from The Bronx attended the event.

Sen. Klein says this is only one small way to express gratitude to the heroes of that day, and he hopes this is the first of many.
