×

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 on Wednesday, Sept. 11, at 6 p.m. on Pier A next to the 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 56 Hoboken residents lost on that day. Each panel is engraved with a name and is illuminated at night. The memorial is 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.
