Hoboken to Host Annual September 11th Interfaith Memorial Service




Hoboken, NJ - Wednesday, September 6th, 2017


All members of the public are invited to attend the City of Hoboken’s annual September 11th Interfaith Memorial Service. Fifty-six Hoboken residents were lost on September 11, 2001.

The service will take place on Monday, September 11, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. on Pier A. This year, the event will take place next to the recently-completed Hoboken 9/11 Memorial in the northwest area of the park.

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 that day. 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.
