Tear Drop Memorial

To the Struggle Against World Terrorism is also known by the Tear of Grief, the Tear Drop Memorial and the Tear of Grief. The 10-story sculpture was created by Zurab Tsereteli and was gifted to the United States by the Russian government to be a tribute to the victims of the 2001 September 11 attacks,  including 26 Russians and the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing. It can be found at the Bayonne Military Ocean Terminal, New Jersey and inaugurated on September 16, 2005.

Tear Drop 9/11 Memorial


9/11 Memorial Teardrop — The bronze-clad tower measures 30 meters high and has a jagged opening at the center. Inside, hangs the nickel-surfaced teardrop measuring 12 meters high. The 175-ton tribute to all those who lost their lives on the city's darkest day. The eleven sides black granite named plates are found in the base of Teardrop monument. These names include those who were killed in the attacks of September 11 and the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing. The dedication, however, was based on an old compilation, and includes about 40 people who were not included in later victim lists.  

Tsereteli didn't disclose the exact cost of the 911 teardrop memorial, other than to say that he paid labor and materials. The cost of the memorial teardrop was estimated at $12 million by a lawyer representing the teardrop statue. Tsereteli stated that the metals used in the sculpture were "from a military plant that made airplanes." In Dzerzhinsk. A secret city."

Teardrop Memorial

911 Teardrop Memorial in NJ — The Tear drop monument was originally given to Jersey City's local government, but it was rejected. The tear drop memorial was moved to Bayonne. This would mean that the teardrop 9/11 memorial would have to be relocated. 

Teardrop memorial looks like — Foreign Policy magazine listed it as one of the most ugly statues in the world, while The New Yorker called it "a giant tea biscuit" at a distance and many people compare this teardrop 911 memorial to female $exual organ. Pro Arts Jersey City described it as "an insensitive, self aggrandizing piece pompousness by one the most blatant self-promoters in the world".
