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.

Beautiful tribute to the 9/11 tragedy. Reading the names, etc. put their lives in view. They weren't just the close to 3,000 that you heard about. You're reading their names. One woman's name with "& her unborn child", made me want to cry. The old, the middle age, the new career person, and the unborn died. Wow!

Another memorial worth the trip. It was moving and emotional and very nicely put together. I'll stop by again next time I'm in the area.

We visited after sundown snd had the place to our self. A beautiful view of the Manhattan Skyline. A very touching place - a shame though that some of the lights on the names didn't work.

We stood, in silence, with tears in our eyes, at this wonderful memorial to those who lost their lives. Very moving.

I feel such a heavy feeling in my heart when going here. I will never forget what I witnessed that day, on September 11th 2001. Being right across the Hudson, had me watching the horrific drama happen, first hand. I'd suggest going here to everyone who hasn't. We mustn't ever forget!
