Twelve years after the September 11 attacks, Hoboken still has not built a permanent memorial to commemorate the 57 residents who died in the attacks.
More than half a million dollars in grant money and donations has been spent on designs for the memorial and purchasing materials that were later determined to not be sustainable.
The location for the memorial has been decided. It will be built on Pier A in Hoboken, over the Hudson River, overlooking the new World Trade Center.
