Staten Island was one of the hardest hit communities on 9/11, losing more than 270 loved
ones in the terrorist attacks on New York City that day. As a result, Staten Island needed
its own memorial, a place for the loved ones of the victims to mourn and reflect, and a place for all visitors to remember those who lost their lives on that tragic day.
The Staten Island 9/11 Memorial is located along the North Shore Waterfront Esplanade adjacent to the Staten Island Ferry Terminal and the Richmond County Ballpark at St. George.
A day to honor and remember
We shall never forget those who perished on 9/11. The men, women, and children in the two towers;, in the Pentagon, passengers in the four planes; all the brave individuals who rushed in to help others and made the ultimate sacrifice. we will never forget
I would like to share a few of the photos I took while spending my morning with family at the 9/11 memorial, hopefully you can come here too.

we often receive requests from homeowners and garden enthusiasts to build custom planter boxes, we design in a variety of styles and sizes all suitable in construct and safe to grow a large variety of enjoyable edibles, Containers can also fit perfectly inside planter boxes making them easy and convenient for you to move around share and do so much more, one of the most important factors in edible growing is choosing a safe fertilizer, avoid chemical fertilizers that can make plants inedible, growing edibles in containers is extremely fun however it can vary a little bit from your standard yard garden, the soil in containers is unlikely to get organic enrichment the natural way so remember to work compost inside the containers.
You can purchase compost at any garden center, compost encourages earthworms and other beneficial organisms whose activities help plants grow providing the needed nutrients improving the soil.
- Sun: Your balcony or terrace should receive about 4 – 5 hours of sun every day, preferably morning and late afternoon when the sun will be less intense, be mindful of this when choosing a location for your containers or planter box.
- Watering: A sprayer attachment on a garden hose or a watering can is a great way to water your container plants, just make sure the water is cool let the water run for a while especially if the hose happened to be in the sun for a good part of the day, hot water can retard root development.
An urban garden right at your fingertips, even in the biggest city, small apartment, the possibility to reconnect with the natural world through gardening is possible, put that balcony to work or complete that roof top garden you have always been dreaming of, we can still take pleasure and enjoy gardening without giving up the advantages of a big city metropolitan lifestyle that we also enjoy.
