Optimum Online Builds Hero Wall


As marchers celebrated and remembered in Manhattan, Optimum Online wants to
recognize personal heroes.

The "St. Patrick's Day Wall of Heroes" tribute area on Cablevision Systems
Corp.'s high-speed Internet service will honor members of the New York metro
area's fire, police, transit and emergency-service departments beginning next

Those selected will be available for viewing on Optimum Online's consumer
home page (www.optonline.net) beginning
April 1, according to a company spokesman.

Those interested in submitting an application on behalf of a hero, including
photo, should access www.optonline.net/patrick.

Optimum Online began building its Wall of Heroes on March 15, and it will
ultimately put the spotlight on deserving members of the community, highlighting
their heroism and giving them the thanks they deserve for serving and protecting
the New York DMA on a daily basis.

Submissions will be accepted online through March 31. Optimum Online will
update the site on a regular basis through April 30.
