Crescent Beach Park - Flagpole/Memorial (Staten Island)

 

Dedicated to: 9/11 Victims

Type of Memorial: Community Garden, Park, Wetland, Greenway, Waterfront

 

Location: Tennsyon Drive and Glover Street

City: Staten Island

State: New York

Country: United States

 

Open to Public: Yes

 

Description:

Purpose: We believe a memorial at Crescent Beach Park will symbolize the love, honor and commitment our community has for the victims and survivors of 9/11/01. The memorial will offer a place (centrally located on the South Shore of Staten Island) for loved ones to gather in a serene waterfront setting and will reflect the love and respect of our community for our flag and our country. From Crescent Beach Park, the skyline of Manhattan is visible - we are located in Great Kills Harbor.

Reason site was selected: This site was selected because it is currently a community park in planning - the community has erected a makeshift memorial and our civic association believes that it would be fitting for a permanent memorial.

Events planned for site: We will offer a candle light vigil at the site on the evening of September 11, 2002 - and probably every year thereafter. Our annual block party is held every year the weekend after Labor Day - to which the community participates actively and we believe our community will welcome the chance for passive/active use of this site as a Memorial and Garden Community Gathering site.

Do you believe your memorial is a sacred place?: A place where one can reflect, remember, pray
