I love the design, but most of all I like the quiet respect in the area where you can contemplate the loss of so many, as well as how much people have given, to rebuild, to bring to justice, to remember. Located in Liberty State Park, there is usually ample free parking, and there are lots of outdoors things to... More

I go for my daily run through Liberty State Park, and always had the same path. One day to expand the distance I ran to the waters edge and found this monument, or at least, it found me. Now it's a part of my daily run and seeing people walk through the unblemished etchings of names of those who were... More

I live nearby, so I see it often. It never fails to move me. It is a small and simple reminder of the grief of that day and all the days that followed.

I honestly find this to obstruct and detract from the natural beauty and serenity of LSP. There is a beauty and peace with how LSP interacts visually with NYC, particularly lower Manhattan where the twin towers stood. No disrespect at all to the purpose of the memorial, but it's a shame in my opinion that such a large, shadow-casting structure... More

Stylish memorial and a fantastic view over Manhattan. We spent the night in Newark before heading on to Florida. Took time to visit Jersey City and Empty Sky. Very nice!

Didn't know what to expect when visiting 9/11 site other than what we had seen on t.v. But all in all it was very touching to see all of the names etched into the panels along the side of the TWO enormous waterfalls that went deep into the center. One of the waterfalls was not functioning at the time we... More

Class, well-done memorial - very sobering to walk through and see where the World Trade Centers were. It really is a beautiful memorial.

My first time to see the other side of the Empty Sky- 9/11 Memorial New Jersey side. It was an awesome view! Very emotional and at the same a heartfelt way of remembering those who perished on that dreadful day.
