The ceremony will take place at City Hall, located at 630 Avenue C, on April 6th at 11:00 a.m. and the public is welcome to attend.
“Bayonne played an important role in providing emergency response on September 11, 2001 and in the days that followed the attack on the World Trade Center,” Mayor Jimmy Davis said in a statement.
“It is most appropriate that the new memorial will include a piece of steel from the World Trade Center. We look forward to welcoming everyone to the memorial event on Wednesday, April 6.”
Two weeks ago, Davis announced that the city would be covering Russian President Vladimir Putin’s name on their 9/11 Tear Drop Memorial due to the ongoing war in Ukraine that began with a Russian invasion.
