Residents Want N.J. 9/11 Memorial To Stay

BAYONNE, N.J. (CBS 2) — A memorial to September 11 victims in New Jersey may have to be moved.

Bayonne’s Teardrop Memorial sits on a terminal owned by the Port Authority. The agency was considering selling the property to make way for a container port.

Residents however said the memorial needs to stay right where it is. “It has to be in eyeshot of Ground Zero.  That’s’ what the whole teardrop is about.  It has to face Ground Zero.  Just disrespectful,” said petition organizer Bob Terzi.

“It shouldn’t be moved.  It should stay here, period. No two ways about it,” said resident Frank Pertucci.

Monuments dedicated to all 13 Bayonne residents killed in the attacks would also have to be moved.
