"A tribute to those who were murdered on 9/11." West Orange by feline01

West Orange Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 4 photos

Eagle Rock Reservation is located near Route 280 in West Orange, NJ. Perched atop of a mountain, on clear days, the New York city skyline can be seen in the distance. That view, as we all know, changed dramatically on 9/11/01. New Jersey lost many mothers, fathers, husbands, wives, children and friends on that day at the World Trade Center and this stretch of wall has become a permanent memorial to those who were killed. A local poet has written countless poems about the attack, the towers and the victims. These poems are attached to the wall as well are mementos left by family and friends. It is a somber reminder of those who were unlucky that day and those who were fortunate to see their families once more. This photo was taken on June 30, 2002-our memories have not faded even with rain washing away some people's messages along this wall.
