A Permanent 9/11 Memorial is Coming to Hoboken

Hoboken is will soon be unveiling conceptual drawings for a proposed 9/11 memorial, which could be potentially completed next year in time for the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

The proposal features two raised, semi-circular platforms, each holding up one half of a glass panel that would be lit to represent the Twin Towers. The platforms will also have a place for visitors to sit and display mementos and flowers in honor of those who died in the attacks. There will also be a piece of steel from the World Trade Center site contributed by City Fire Chief Richard Blohm.

The proposed memorial was designed by Secaucus-based engineering firm Remington and Vernick and would be built in the middle of Hoboken’s Memorial Tree Grove next to Pier A Park where the temporary Tear Drop 9/11 memorial is currently located.
