Address: 21 Gagan Road

City: Haverstraw

State: New York

Description:

Purpose: To memorialize the 71 victims with ties to Rockland County.

Reason site was selected: The site was selected because of its historical link to the building of New York City. Itís unmatched beauty, and its accessibility to the Hudson River. It is unique because of the availability of picnic facilities, open air pavilion, playgrounds, public boat launch, fishing pier, nature trails, a 9.5 acre freshwater pond, and approximately 2,350 feet of Hudson River shoreline that connect Rockland with New York City and the rest of the world. The park was also within sight of the two passenger planes (United Airlines Flight 11 and American Airlines Flight 91) as they were headed for New York City on September 11, 2001. A piece of steel from WTC site is included.

Events planned for site: TBD.
