New York in New York County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
September 11, 2001 Living Memorial Grove
This grove of flowering trees is a living memorial dedicated to the tragic events of September 11th, 2001. It is one of five Living Memorial Groves around the City, one in each borough in a park with clear views of downtown Manhattan where the twin towers once stood. All of the groves have trees that flower with white blossoms in the spring. This grove is comprised of trees transplanted from the plaza areas around the World Trade Center that were badly damaged but survived. The trees planted in these groves will provide a lasting reminder of a terrible event, while also creating a gathering space for remembrance and healing.
The maintenance for this memorial grove is funded through 2009 by the Living Memorial Tree Foundation under the Patronage of HSH Prince Albert of Monaco, with the help and support of the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation, American Forests and The Municipal Arts Society of New York.
