TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey communities remembered the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks from the banks of the Hudson River to the bedroom communities that nearly 750 victims called home.

New Jersey residents died at the World Trade Center, aboard the hijacked jetliners and at the Pentagon.

Gov. Chris Christie and his wife attended the World Trade Center Remembrance ceremony in New York City.

The Asbury Park Press (http://on.app.com/1pTdRBf ) reports chimes tolled 37 times during a wreath-laying ceremony for the Middletown residents killed in the attacks. The township’s memorial garden includes their images on individual monuments.

Some towns hosted interfaith services while others held events that emphasized the spirit of volunteerism and community participation that came about in the days following the 2001 attacks.
