Remembering Sept. 11, 2001

DeKorte Park is home to the World Trade Center Memorial Cove, next to the NJMC Administration Building and facing a ManhattanEgret skyline that once prominently featured the Twin Towers.

The memorial features two wooden piers suggesting the fallen towers. Each pier is composed of 110 boards, each symbolizing a floor of the buildings.

Nearby, a steel silhouette of the pre-9/11 skyline recalls the view before the attacks. 

A plaque with the following quote accompanies the memorial:

"In the night of death, hope sees a star, and listening love can hear the rustle of a wing." — Robert Ingersoll.
