This is a memorial to the victims of the World Trade Center attack. It
is located on the New Jersey side of the Hudson River in Jersey City.
The Manhattan skyline is in the background and it looks out on exactly
where the WTC once stood. The memorial was created by an actual beam
from the WTC and has been adorned with various mementos, angels,
American flags, etc. Ironically, this memorial is just a short drive
from Liberty State Park where you catch the ferry to visit the Statue of
Liberty. It has always seemed stunning to me that tourists were on
Liberty Island, visiting the Statue when 9-11 happened--and from that
great monument to liberty, they watched America being attacked.
