Empty Sky Memorial
Wreath-laying ceremonies, interfaith services and other events aimed at honoring those killed while focusing on the future were held throughout the state.
The 749 New Jersey residents killed on 9/11 were remembered Sunday during a ceremony at the Empty Sky Memorial in Liberty State Park.
New Jersey 9/11 Memorial Foundation chairman Rick Cahill said the event had to be canceled because the damage to the park from superstorm Sandy didn’t get fixed in time. Cahill said there also wasn’t enough interest in the ceremony this year.
