WEST ORANGE, NJ - Last April, a new gazebo was unveiled at the Essex County 9-11 Memorial at Eagle Rock Reservation in West Orange, NJ. The gazebo was among the latest improvements to the memorial, along with handicapped accessible walkways, a field of wildflowers and seating areas looking out over the Manhattan skyline.

Architect Daniel Dowd of Barreto Dowd Architects was commissioned to handle the gazebo area of the memorial site. Dowd chose to use Glacier Blue™ Devonian sandstone in and around the gazebo leading down to an area overlooking Manhattan. The pale blue stone from Upstate New York has been chosen for residential, commercial and institutional projects across the country.

A new gazebo was unveiled at the Essex County 9-11 Memorial at Eagle Rock Reservation in West Orange, NJ.

Construction of the gazebo took seven months to complete and after completion, Essex County Executive Joseph DiVincenzo spoke at a dedication ceremony where residents and officials welcomed the opening of the Memorial. The entire project cost over $900,000 and was funded by Essex County, the Eagle Rock Conservancy, the Highlawn Pavilion Restaurant and various other organizations.
