9/11 Memorial Glade
Dedicated on May 30, 2019, the 9/11 Memorial Glade honors the ongoing sacrifice of responders and survivors who are sick or who have died from 9/11-related illnesses. It also commemorates the courage, selflessness, and perseverance of the men and women who participated in 9/11 rescue and recovery efforts. The Glade pathway is flanked by six large stone monoliths that are inlaid with steel from the original World Trade Center.
