Security will be reviewed at Memorial Park, a chapel housing remains of September 11th victims, following a fire over the weekend that damaged the building.

Brian Schroeder, 26, was arraigned yesterday on a slew of charges including arson and reckless endangerment in connection with the fire.

Investigators say Schroeder broke in and set the fire in the building located behind the medical examiner's office on East 30th Street in Manhattan. The fire damaged a wooden bench, photos, and mementos left by mourners.

No remains were destroyed.

Schroeder allegedly admitted to setting the fire, claiming he was drunk and "it felt like an adventure."

Bail was set at $3,000.

The mayor's office says security at the site will be reviewed and stepped up if necessary. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
