Inscription. Welcome to the
Monroe Township Memorial Park
Sculpture Designed by Blaise Batko
The symbols used in the design of this site reflect the events that touched all of our lives on September 11, 2001. The nine black granite panels signify the month of September. These panels are carved to symbolize the New York City skyline. The date of eleven is symbolized by the black walkways. These same walkways represent the shadows of the missing World Trade Center Buildings in the New York City skyline. The white sidewalk is in the shape of the Pentagon. The two flagpoles remind us that the United States is a strong nation that has risen up from this tragedy and remains indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Mr. Vincent Gallucci is survived by his wife Barbara and his children, Joe and Alyssa.
