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.

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.

The view from inside the memorial to the former spot where the WTC stood is emotional. If you take time to linger you will feel it.

This tribute was nicely designed. It has all the names of the New Jersey residents who were killed in the 9/11 bombings of the World Trade Center. An emotional tribute.

Nice place to visit if you are in the area. Memorial site is moving. Behind the site, there is a nice view to the NYC. If you take panoramic view it comes out really nice. Enjoy the park and view of the water front.

We did a road trip and NYC was one of our stops - the world trade center site was one of the places we had on our must do. We didn't go into the museum but just walked around the memorial site. It is very moving.
