Do I Live In a Cave?

I have never heard anything about this. It was dedicated September 11, 2006 and I've never seen a picture or heard a thing about it until today.

It is titled "To the Struggle Against World Terrorism" and the best pictures and information I could find about it were surprisingly here at snopes.com. Apparently, I am not the only one a little dubious about a "monument" that I've never heard of. It seems to me a beautiful and thoughtful gesture. Why is it a secret?

Have you guys heard of it? Seen it?


  1. You've never heard of it because it's in New Jersey, and Snooki wasn't involved.

    II heard about it a few years ago, but haven't thought of it since, probably. Most people think of Ground Zero as the place for memorials and such.

    I wonder why they put it in New Jersey...

    1. But, yes, you probably do live in a cave.

    2. I've never heard of Snooki, either.

      From the monuments brochure: "Bayonne [New Jersey] was a fitting location; the city was an arrival point for many NYC evacuees on 9/11, a staging area for rescuers, and offered a direct view of The Statue of Liberty and the former World Trade Center Towers."

      The stainless steel tear drop is "lined up with" the Statue of Liberty.

    3. Never heard of Snooki?

      Lucky snot.

  2. this deserved more coverage. thanks
