9/11 Teardrop Memorial - "To the Struggle Against World Terrorism" sculpture by Zurab Tsereteli given to the United States by the Russian government as a memorial to the victims of the September 11 attacks and the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. It stands at the end of the former MOTBY in Bayonne, New Jersey and was dedicated on September 11, 2006 in a ceremony attended by former U.S. President Bill Clinton and Prime Minister of Russia Vladimir Putin.

"Zurab Tsereteli – one of Russia's leading sculptors – went to Ground Zero after the attack. He was told boats and ferries had shuttled survivors across to New Jersey, where many of the victims had lived. Learning that, he wanted his statue to be on the remote waterfront there with Manhattan as the backdrop."
