The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has granted requests from Sayreville and South Amboy to donate steel remnants from the twin towers to commemorate the tragedy.

Firemen from the municipalities spearheaded the drive to acquire the steel.

Sayreville will receive a piece of wreckage that is 56 inches high, weighing over 3000 pounds.  South Amboy has aquired a ten foot piece of steel for its site.

South Amboy officials are waiting for New Jersey Transit’s approval to build their memorial near the train station.  Sayreville is in the process of finalizing their plans that will include a plaque that will be placed at their memorial.
