“Empty Sky” 9/11 Memorial
"Let this memorial reflect the legacies of those whose lives were lost, that their unfulfilled dreams and hopes may result in a better future for society. Their unique qualities and characteristics enriched our lives immeasurably, and through this memorial their stories shall live on."

The Museum of Russian Art
Since its founding in 1980, The Museum of Russian Art has been paramount to the introduction of Russian art to American audiences. With its core collection largely culled from human rights activist Alexander Glezer’s private holdings, the museum’s collection during its formative years was on a par only with that of Norton Dodge for that time.
The familiar octagonal Colgate clock, facing Manhattan, dates back to 1924 when it was set in motion on December 1 by Jersey City's Mayor Frank Hague. Located on the former site of Colgate-Palmolive & Company, it is a reminder of the time when factories dominated the Jersey City's waterfront.
Loew's Landmark Jersey Theatre
Going beyond the classical performing arts to embrace and showcase “the art of American entertainment” -- the music, plays and movies that continue to shape and chronicle the American experience. It is a venue for concerts, touring musicals and children’s programs.
