    9-11 Memorial of Jersey City residents

    by blueskyjohn Updated Dec 27, 2014

    Favorite thing: This memorial is dedicated to the residents of Jersey City that died in the attack of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. The stone memorial has a relief of the twin towers face the Hudson River and lower Manhattan and on the reverse is a list of the victims. On this reverse side, the stone is so polished that a clear reflection of the current World Trade Center is clear and beautiful.

    Names of the Jersey City residents that died that day:
    Alok Agarwal
    Ivan Kyrillos Fairbanks Barbosa
    Sherry Ann Bordeaux
    Edward Calderon
    Swarna Chalasani
    John Robert Cruz
    Jemal Legesse De Santis
    Andrea Dellabella
    Christopher More Dincuff
    Samantha M. Egan
    Barbara G. Etzold
    Nancy Carole Farley
    Anne Marie Sallerin Ferreira
    Boyd A. Gatton
    Rosa J. Gonzalez
    John Richard Keohane
    SeiLai Khoo
    Andrew La Corte
    Leon Lebor
    Wei Rong Lin
    Alan Linton
    Jerome Robert Lohez
    Manuel L. Lopez
    Joseph L. Lovero
    Waleska Martinez
    Francis Joseph Nazario
    Angel Perez
    Susan M. Pollio
    Aida Rosario
    Jon Schlissel
    Thomas F. Swift
    Mary Ellen Tiesi
    Zhanetta Tsoy
    Edward Raymond Vanacore
    Nathaniel Webb
    John Charles Willett
    Siucheng Steve Wong
    Matthew David Yarnell

    Opposite of this memorial are some steel beams that were part of the World Trade Center after the attack.

    Fondest memory: Near the Exchange Place PATH station (just south of it) on the waterfront Definitely worth a visit to see how the new World Trade Center reflects in the memorial.

    LeFrak Point Lighthouse

    by blueskyjohn Written Nov 29, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: This is an interesting addition to the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway. There actually is no LeFrak Point on the Hudson River in Jersey City. Samuel LaFrak was a developer that organized and help fund a $10 billion project to redevelop the Jersey City waterfront in the mid 1980's.

    There are two stories about the lighthouse. One story states, it is purely decorative, build to honor the Lighthouse Foundation that was a favorite of the LeFrak family. Another story is that Sam LaFrak had it built to mark the entrance of a nearby marina where he kept his boat.

    Either way, the lighthouse is not a legal navigational aid and there is nothing inside. There is a light facing east but it does not rotate.

    The lighthouse is near the Newport/Pavonia PATH station.

    Favorite thing: Visit Liberty State Park. Here you can see the entire Manhattan skyline. Also, you can catch a ferry to see the Statue of Liberty or Ellis Island. This is a pleasant park with a lot of activities to do.
