The 9/11 Memorial is a must see for all Americans.....it's a sad, melancholic, bittersweet tribute to 9/11 and the victims. Unfortunately it's getting very touristy and crowded. The lines to the museum are insane. But it's worthwhile to see the memorial & and walk around the plaza.

We stumbled upon this as we were driving around Liberty State Park. Had no idea NJ even had their own memorial. What a humbling experience. You aren't an American if you aren't touched by this in some way. A beautiful tribute to those who lost their lives.

Words can't describe. Everyone needs to experience in their own way. Lot's of different emotions went through my mind and body as I experienced this.

This was a very unique experience. The area has been transformed and has areas for quiet meditation and thought. A tribute to all of those who perished.

I think this memorial is even more moving than the one at ground zero. It is quiet at the Empty Sky Memorial and you really can feel the void from the buildings that once stood.

This is a very somber place. Very tastefully done and with no insult to Americans I was afraid that it could have been over done with rhetoric but it was so well done, with respect to those affected by that day.

We planned a stop at Libery Park to relax for a bit before heading into Manhattan. We were taking in the skyline (first time to NYC) when we came upon this memorial. It brought my wife and I to tears when the memorial lined up with the skyline. It's a very nice memorial and we would highly recommend that everyone... More

There was nothing to dislike here. This moved our entire family to tears. Very moving. Really left us speechless. A beautiful memorial. If you are coming to New York City, this is a must-see.
