Governor McGreevey dedicates site for Empty Sky Memorial

Just one day before the anniversary of the September 11th attacks, Governor Jim McGreevey (D-NJ) officially dedicated the site for New Jersey's Empty Sky Memorial. The memorial will overlook the site where the Twin Towers once stood across from the Hudson River. It will point in the direction of Ground Zero and be constructed at the river's edge in Liberty State Park. The memorial will stand 30 feet tall and 200 feet wide and will list the names of the nearly 700 men, women and children who died at the World Trade Center. Two steel walls will face each other changing colors throughout the day.
