Hoboken to Host Annual September 11th Interfaith Memorial Service
All members of the public are invited to attend the City of Hoboken’s annual September 11th Interfaith Memorial Service. The service will take place tonight, Saturday, September 11, at 6 p.m. on Pier A next to the Hoboken 9/11 Memorial in the northwest area of the park. The City requests that all residents who attend, who are not vaccinated, wear face masks.
The memorial is aligned in the direction of the World Trade Center site and includes a steel beam base with a glass panel for each of the fifty-six Hoboken residents lost on Sept. 11, 2001. Each panel is engraved with a name and is illuminated at night. The memorial is located within the grove of ginkgo trees which are also aligned with the World Trade Center that were planted in 2002 as a living memorial. The perimeter of the grove includes steel plates on the ground engraved with quotes from those who were there on that fateful day.
