9/11 Memorial Marker

This plaque -- relatively modest when compared to some other tributes -- is Red Bank's memorial to the attack on the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. The town lost two residents. In the commuting-distance arc that radiates out from New York into New Jersey and Connecticut, nearly every municipality has chosen to permanently mark the tragedy.

This monument sits to one side in a riverside park where impromptu memorials, photos and letters accumulated in 2001 and subsequent anniversaries.
