Ground Breaking for New 9/11 Memorial in N.J.
- Apr 20, 2011
Weehawken, N.J.–Weehawken Mayor Richard Turner is leading officials from the Port Authority, Port Imperial Master Developer Roseland Property Company and other dignitaries today in ground-breaking ceremonies for a new 9/11 memorial to be built along the Hudson River in Weehawken.
The memorial will ultimately feature an infinity pool displaying steel that was salvaged from the World Trade Center/Ground Zero site. The Port Authority donated the steel for the memorial, two large pieces of which will be erected within the pool to form an arch reflective of the architectural element from the World Trade Center.
The completed memorial will be dedicated on September 11, the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy.
