I really enjoyed touring Liberty State Park the other day. I was especially moved by the 9/11 Memorial, with the names of the deceased inscribed on the walls. I found this piece very powerful. It’s called “Empty Sky”. I am bundled up in my coat because it was really cold (around 32°F / 0°C)

Empty Sky is the official New Jersey September 11 memorial to the state’s victims of the September 11 attacks on the United States. It is located in Liberty State Park in Jersey City at the mouth of Hudson River across from the World Trade Center site. Designed by Jessica Jamroz and Frederic Schwartz, it was dedicated on Saturday, September 10, 2011, a day before the tenth anniversary of the attacks.
