Postcard Perfect -- by Libby McMillan

Liberty State Park in Jersey City, N.J. is where you'll find the striking 9/11 memorial called "Empty Sky," which bears the names of the 2001 attack victims from New Jersey.  Thousands of residents watched from this park, as the surreal scene in Manhattan led to the fall of the Twin Towers.  Many spectators had friends and family working in the towers but could only watch helplessly while the infamous morning's events unfolded.  Empty Sky's powerful design - by Jessica Jamroz and Frederic Schwartz - moved the memorial selection committee to make a unanimous choice from among 320 entries.
