Cresskill will finally get its 9/11 memorial

The town of Cresskill, NJ will finally build a September 11th memorial honoring those killed by the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, including two local men, NYPD Sergeant John Coughlin who was killed responding to the attacks, and PAPD Officer John Cortazzo, who died of site-related blood cancer in 2009 after working during the recovery effort.

Cresskill has had World Trade Center steel for a memorial since 2015, and the committee expects to have a memorial for this year’s commemoration of the attacks, reports Ricardo Kaulessar for the North Jersey Record.
