There is really nothing to do here except for a photo op. The place is a good walking distance from the Liberty State Park, the ferry terminal and parking area. If you are already in the vicinity, might as well swing by here and see what it is. The site does serve the purpose of commemorating the iconic structures we... More

Located in a corner of Liberty State Park, this monument to the victims of 9/11 is moving and elegant in its simplicity. Great view of the NYC skyline. Near the classic rr termijnal which is closed for repairs. If driving, come via the Turnpike: not via Jersey City.

I admit that I should have visited this memorial long before this. It is quite the memorial to something that we will never forget. I was very pleased to be able to view the New World Trade Center from this angle

No idea this was here. Our host brought us to Liberty Park to see this as he's a photographer. The drop in temperature as you walk the length of the memorial is amazing. The chunk of girder that is there brought a tear to my eye though as it is a piece of the tower and therefore was more real.... More

Up from Alabama, and had no idea this was here. We were just driving around looking for afternoon shots of NYC and found this. Very excellent, and whoever came up with this idea surely got a huge promotion, raise or something. This is a very excellent location to visit. DO NOT MISS!!!

A simple yet beautifully designed memorial that could not fail to move you. Despite the fact that there were many others there like myself, I felt nothing but quiet serenity. Which is in stark contrast to the roots of this memorial. Humbling.

A very serene, simple, yet moving tribute to 9/11. Very easy to access since right next to the car park and definitely worth a visit if you are in the park or taking the boat to the Staute of Liberty.

A very sad and humbling place to be. This memorial lists the name of all those who sadly lost their lives at the hands of those who want to take away our freedom. Visit the memorial and as you look across the river towards NYC take time to reflect on life. A very emotional place.

We were very happy to find this serene, poignant memorial close to our hotel in Jersey City. It is well designed and very moving.
