This is a great way to reveal the story of the Triangle Factory, and listing the information about the names of survivors and deaths is very interesting. – Audra, East Greenbush, NY   9 Feb 2009

Never Again – Bob Pfister, Jasper IN   3 Feb 2009

thank you for your service – odaborana, ethiopia   3 Feb 2009

It is quite important for the story of the Triangle factory fire to be told and not forgotten, but i think it is equally important for the connection that these type of events still occur today. – Erica, Madison WI   2 Feb 2009

This is a great site and uses great resourses. I think that the fire sld of never happened, but if it did, I don't think that that many people should have died. – ATG, Miami   2 Feb 2009

I was so heartbroken to learn about this harrowing event. As part of my American Social Problems class, I have done some research on this most tragic event of the Industrialization of America. As a seamstress myself, I have a personal connection to these women and girls who suffered needlessly, just to make a buck to feed their families. I think this website is another way of paying respects to those poor souls who were first abandoned through their striking efforts and then trapped atop 10 stories of burning cloth. Ironically, I feel that those flames shed a new light on business regulations in American History. Unfortunately, it took this massive tradedy to open the eyes of those unwilling to see... – jessica robertson, sonora, ca   29 Jan 2009

Great site – Adam D. Aquilante, Cranston ri   29 Jan 2009

This is a great site for those who want to learn about one of the greatest tragedies in American history. I hope more and more people vist this site and I'll recommend it to all of my friends!! – Sarah Jacob, New Orleans, LA   26 Jan 2009

This is a great memorial for the victims of the site. It is said to say our Nation didn't learn earlier with the Iroquois disaster in Chicago in 1903. But to the victim's families, we as students and historians will always remember. – Danny , Victoria Tx   26 Jan 2009

Need ASHES OF ROSES lesson plans and test. – Lynne, Omaha, NE   26 Jan 2009

I agree with some of the other visitors that a more fitting memorial be placed at the site. However, I can hardly think as fitting as this site. I hope it will remain active for a very long time and continue to move the people who look in from time to time. I'm very impressed by the number of young folks who used this site ans the event it documents, as a basis for class projects. Perhaps the most lasting tribute of all. – DFW, Elkin, NC   23 Jan 2009

This website was very informative and I learned alot. I had to go on this site for a World History 2 assignment. I enjoyed learning about something that happened in my nation. – NRH, VBVA   5 Jan 2009

A wonderful website. – Robert Reed, Winters, California   4 Jan 2009

Good informative site, but you make no mention of the life safety code that I can find. This disaster was one of the main reasons the code was developed - it is unfortunate that a disaster had to occur before something was done. The code has no doubt saved thousands of lives since that day. Your site does look rather biased against industry in the word choice used and I do question your agenda; this approach really has no place in an educational site. If I am mistaken please excuse me. – dave, tennessee   2 Jan 2009

Fantastic website. We must never forget this tragic event or else we are doomed to repeat it. – Howie Meibach, L.A. via Brooklyn   29 Dec 2008

mucho helpful in writing my report.... – Matt, Connecticut   9 Dec 2008

I really enjoyed looking through this website! The whole fire itself really upsets me still to this day and the fact that you have this website up so that people do not forget is an awesome thing! The fact that you guys have audio, picture, illustrations and so much more just show how much time and effort you guys put into making this website! I congratulate you on such an amazing job with making history so important! 3 – Kasey M McKane, Okeechobee Florida   3 Dec 2008

I completely agree with Mr. Bentley's statement. I think it is a complete outrage that the only thing at the site of the tragedy is a small plaque that noone knows about. I believe it is at NYU. I think we should ask NYU to put up a more suitable memorial, possibly with names of all the victims on it. – Bryan Pauquette, Columbus, OH   2 Dec 2008

This is a really great site! As you note,link to etc. there is a lot of additional information, songs, poems, stories, a memorial at Mt. Zion cemetary, a memorial organization, an annual on-site event and much more. However, I believe that at the site of the fire there is only a small plaque. I am concerned about the size, visibility and effectiveness of the memorial plaque and it's ability to raise and maintain interest, memorialize and educate. Millions pass the site each year, most never notice the plaque and those that do rarely understand the magnitude of the tragedy or it's importance to America's history, the labor movement, union's, worker safety, the garment industry and women. More should be done at the Triangle Fire location - a memorial worthy of the tragedy and it's significance. – Bruce Bentley, Slingerlands, New York   2 Dec 2008

Woo go you peoples! You're sharing the truth and you deserve congrats!!! I think this website helped alot with my school papers! TY!!!!!! – SaraBeth H., 15 Pinestreet   2 Dec 2008

This is amazing, after seeing this website we decided to use this for our research project! – Kayla Renz and Richie Pulvermacher, Spring Green, Wisconsin   26 Nov 2008

Am now reading,Triangle-The Fire That Changed America,by David VonDrehle.Id not realized that the building was still standing.Its all such a tragic,amazing story. – John, Portland Maine   26 Nov 2008

powerful represenation of our history – T.L., Atlanta,ga   25 Nov 2008

Last night I watched a documentary on PBS that had a segment dedicated to the Triangle Factory Fire (this story gave me impetus to learn more). It is very good that this site exists and I commend all who contribute and maintain this resource. – ESS, Washington, DC   24 Nov 2008

It is a tragedy that such things occur. I hope that this will shed some light on the working conditions in our country, and hopefully lead to more strict legislation to prevent its recurrence. – CJE, Valdosta, GA   23 Nov 2008

i would like to know more about the triangle fire and what year it happend – augustus buttafuoco, hudsonn.n.y. 12534   22 Nov 2008

this is so sad and yet fastinating! It is crazy that it is 911 and in a building. 11 should be the unlucky number! not 13! I hope to learn more about the people. – av, md   20 Nov 2008

I am glad this happened so that it would set our economy in motion to upgrade our working conditions standards and saftey laws to current day. – KB, Ohio   20 Nov 2008

I would hope one day that someone would produce a film about this tragedy. Not a romantic version, ala, "The Titantic" but a factual account. A rock group, The Brandos, did a haunting celtic/rock song, "Triangle Fire" on their 2006 CD, "Over the Border" I can envision a powerful film here, lying in the ashes. The NYFD will do their tribute to the victims in March. I hope to be there this year. – DFW, Elkin,NC   19 Nov 2008
