2 Exchange Place, Jersey City, NJ 07302 Directions
Katyn Memorial boasts stunning views of Manhattan's West Side. The truly disturbing memorial is the gleaming contemporary buildings, bars, and park benches that lining the waterfront. The knitted soldier statue resembles one that was found more commonly behind the old Iron Curtain. The Jersey statue violently captures the terrible events that have taken place in the KatyForest. The monument memorializes the massacre of over 20,000 Polish soldiers at Stalin's orders after the Soviet Union had invaded Poland in 1940. It has more than 7,000 Polish prisoners killed personally by Stalin 's chief executioner Vasily Mikhailovich Blokhin, making it the most prolific mass murderer in world history.

HUDSON AND MANHATTAN RAILROAD POWERHOUSE
285 Monmouth Street, Jersey City, NJ 07302 Directions
Powerhouse is one block from the docks where ferries and water taxis come from lower and midtown Manhattan, and three separate PATH stations are a few blocks away. The most massive windows are 1,300 square feet each (the largest of its kind on the East Coast), and a sliding door on the east side is large enough for a railway car to be allowed. The next stabilization work step would provide the entire building with new temporary roof preservation of New Jersey as one of the ten most at-risk historic sites in the state.
