BAYONNE - As many gather to remember the tragic events of Sept. 11, those who come to the teardrop memorial in Bayonne are worrying if they?ll be allowed access to it again after this year.

The land which the memorial sits on was recently purchased by the Port Authority in order to build a container shipping port.

For many who lost family in the Sept. 11 attacks, the memorial is the only way they have to remember their loved ones and they fear that if the shipping port is built, they?ll lose access to the memorial.

Neither the Port Authority nor Bayonne Mayor Mark Smith has commented about what might be done with the memorial.
