As we approach the 16th anniversary of the attacks on September 11, 2001, the City of Hoboken invites the community to attend a service at the recently completed Hoboken 9/11 Memorial in the northwest area of the park.
The memorial is aligned in the direction of the World Trade Center site and includes a steel beam base with a glass panel for each of the 56 Hoboken residents lost on that day.
Each panel is engraved with a name and is illuminated at night. The memorial is located within the grove of ginkgo trees which are also aligned with the World Trade Center that were planted in 2002 as a living memorial. The perimeter of the grove includes steel plates on the ground engraved with quotes from those who were there on that fateful day.
The City’s Interfaith Memorial Service will take place on Monday, September 11, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. on Pier A. All are encouraged to attend.
