The View & Empty Sky

Last night some friends and I went to see the Tribute in Light and Empty Sky Memorial at Liberty State Park on the Jersey side of the Hudson River. What an amazing view.

People were everywhere trying to snap the perfect photo. As for me my good camera died just the other day so these pics were taken with my old one. Not the best but you get the idea.

The Empty Sky Memorial contains the names of all New Jerseyans who perished that day. 


It's been years since I've been to that park but so glad I finally got to see this wonderful tribute.

  1. That' a beautiful tribute.... I read yesterday that 40% of people who died there were not yet identified ! Oh my...i'm thinking to the poor families.... it must be horrible like a scar which never close up....
    Thank you for these pictures Barbara.

  2. Haunting and moving images - 15 years - and yet just a moment ago...

  3. What a moving tribute. It would have been emotional being there.

  4. I didn't realize there was a memorial in Liberty Park. We always took visitors to the park on our way to Newark Airport. It is such a great spot to view the skyline.
    Great photos of the lights. They really are striking and poignant.
