Many towns in New Jersey have train stations. On the evening of September 11, 2001, and for a few days afterwards, some cars remained parked by the stations, in the places their owners had left them on the morning of the day we now remember as 9/11. Local newspapers described how relatives left the cars in the parking lots and only came to retrieve them as the days past and no loved one, who had worked in the World Trade Center or was in lower Manhattan that morning, stepped down from the train platform to drive their car home.
Many towns in New Jersey lost residents in the attacks on 9/11. In the past ten years, every town who lost someone has built memorials, often near their town center — near the train station — and commemorating each person who died.
The Empty Sky Memorial was dedicated today, September 10, 2011, in Liberty State Park in Jersey City. The photo above is of the 9/11 Memorial on Grand Street in Jersey City, directly across from where the World Trade Center once stood; below are close-ups.
