Brooklawn, New Jersey 9-11 Memorial Park
With pride, loyalty and good will the Parks Department and townspeople of Brooklawn, New Jersey put together a paver memorials plan to honor those who lost their lives in the tragic 9-11 attack on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the heroic passengers of Flight 93. The Park Department, Paverart LLC, and Veterans Groups used stone and services donated by the EP Henry company to build a creative meaningful monument to those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. The artifacts used in the monument were donated by the United States Department of Defense, Washington Headquarters Services, and the Pentagon.
The people of Brooklawn turned to PAVERART LLC President and Designer Mick Seroka, who, alongside the Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Mike Bull set the paver memorials project in motion. Seroka explained it is like putting a stone puzzle together which makes is simpler and more manageable on the job site. Once the emblem was created at PAVERART the whole thing was packaged on a pallet and delivered to the memorial site. Installation of the mural stone emblem took just 23 minutes.
Steven Saymon Captain of the Brooklawn Police described the stone paver memorials emblem, “It is absolutely stunning work and it fits right in line with the artifacts from the three disaster sites of September 11, 2001.” Follow the project from start to finish by clicking on this video.
