2. Postcards Memorial

Postcards memorial on Staten Island

Postcards is one of the many 9/11 tribute monuments in New York City. It’s located in the North Shore Waterfront Esplanade Park on Staten Island and dedicated to the Staten Island residents who lost their lives on September 11, as well as those in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. The memorial, designed by Masayuki Sono, is consisted of two wing-like structures aligned towards where the Twin Towers once stood.

The 275 Staten Islanders are remembered with their own granite plaque engraved with their name, birth date, and a silhouette of their profile looking towards the site of Ground Zero.
