The East Coast Memorial, which sits near the southern tip of Battery Park, is often overlooked as thousands walk by it on their way to Statue of Liberty ferries. It memorializes those lost on the Atlantic front of World War II. Along with two sister memorials – one on San Francisco and one in Hawaii – it is administered by the American Battle Monuments Commission.
