One of many grand memorials honoring the attacks at The World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, the “To the Struggle Against World Terrorism” or “Teardrop Memorial” holds a special place in the heart of Hudson County. Gifted by Russia in 2006, the massive teardrop hanging between two jagged edges symbolizes the both the heartache terrorism causes, while, if you position yourself right, creates the illusion of where the twin towers once stood just across the river in Manhattan. As Bill Clinton said, the piece captures “the remarkable feelings that go beyond words” and visitors of the memorial tend to agree.
