Remembrance and Rebirth

Prospect & Eagle Rock Avenues
West Orange, NJ 07052
  • Overview

    Located on the lookout at Eagle Rock Reservation in West Orange, this memorial features multiple elements that pay tribute to the victims of 9/11. A central sculpture of an eagle with its wings spread appears to be flying away from New York City. The eagle rises from a sculpture of an open book that is engraved with the names of all Essex County residents who perished in the attacks. Other sculptural elements include a bronze replica of a firefighter's helmet and a police officer's hat, a girl holding flowers and a teddy bear, and a boy holding a lantern and gazing in the direction of New York City.
