  13. “To the Struggle Against World Terrorism,” was conceived as the events of 9/11 unfolded and Russian artist Zurab Tsereteli walked the streets of Moscow. Struck by the outpouring of grief he observed, a memorial with an image of a tear formed in his mind. Shortly after the attacks, Tsereteli visited ground zero and looked to New Jersey’s waterfront for an appropriate site for a monument honoring victims of the World Trade Center terrorist attacks. Zurab Tsereteli is one of Russia’s most prominent and prolific artists. A sculptor, designer and architect, he captures significant historical events in large-scale sculptures and monuments on view in museums and public spaces throughout Russia, Europe, Israel, Uruguay and the United States. Other noted works by the artist include the “Victory” monument at the Moscow War Memorial, “Peter the Great” in downtown Moscow and “Good Defeats Evil” a sculpture created from scrapped American and Soviet missiles on the grounds of the United Nations in New York.

  14. The nickel-plated teardrop contained within the monument weighs four tons and measures approximately 40 feet high.

  15. THE MEMORIAL AT HARBOR VIEW PARKBayonne, New JerseyA gift from Tsereteli and the Russian people, the memorial is made of steel sheathed in bronze. Standing 100 feet high, its center contains a jagged tear. In it, hangs a 40-foot stainless steel teardrop, representing sadness and grief over the loss of life, but also hope for a future free from terror. Etched in ngranite on an 11-sided base are the names of the nearly 3,000 killed in the 1993 World Trade Center bombings and terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
