    Written by:

    This week marks the 18th anniversary of the September 11th attacks on our country. In 2001, that day changed our nation — people all across the U.S. were tuned into their TVs to as the Twin Towers collapsed. But some of us — neighbors to NYC + NYC locals — were horrified to watch the tragic day firsthand. On September 11, 2019, memorial services are happening all across Hudson County to pay respects to that historical, devastating day and those that lost their lives. Below is a roundup of 9/11 memorial services in Hoboken, Jersey City, Weehawken, Bayonne, and beyond in Hudson County.
