New Jersey Remembers 9/11

New Jersey communities will pause and remember the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks from the banks of the Hudson River to the bedroom communities that nearly 750 victims called home.

New Jersey residents died at the World Trade Center, aboard the hijacked jetliners and at the Pentagon.

Gov. Chris Christie and his wife will attend the World Trade Center Remembrance ceremony in New York City.

Wreath-laying ceremonies, interfaith services and other events aimed at honoring those killed while focusing on the future are planned throughout the state.

Many towns are planning events that emphasize the spirit of volunteerism and community participation that came about in the days following the 2001 attacks.
