Photo of the Day: World Trade Center Memorial, Overpeck Park, Bergen County NJ

Not just in New York City, but in its surroundings, many victims of the attacks at the World Trade Center resided, and a number of these towns have held annual ceremonies in the last 20 years honoring the fallen. In New Jersey alone, there are estimated to be more than 150 such memorials.

One of these areas was Bergen County in Northern New Jersey, where I live. This morning one of these commemorations occurred there, in Overpeck Park. I came by later in the day, when signs of the ceremony were still evident, and took this photograph.

I like the heart design around the "Towers" where the victims' names are inscribed. They indicate where those people will always remain.
