A must visit while in NY. A truly humbling experience. It is hard not to get emotional while visiting the site of this terrible act of terrorism.

I happened upon this while wait for our ferry to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. I knew I wasn't emotionally ready to go to Ground Zero on my visit, but this beautiful piece of art gave me a place to honor those who died on that horrible day. The view looks right at Freedom Tower. Its a stunning... More

This was visible from my hotel. I booked an online ticket for entry for 1USD. The visit was smooth. Information available everywhere. Though did get lost trying to find my way. But overall its a amazing man made place.

You have a wonderful view of Manhattan and the "empty sky" there. Although the new World Trade Center is there now, it will be always "empty" there.

This is the 9/11 Memorial on the Jersey side in Liberty State Park and is free with ample parking. We stumbled upon this monument while taking pictures of the Manhattan Skyline. There is also a piece of the WTC at the Memorial.

This is a place for all Americans to see and feel the emotions emitted by this site. This is our modern day Alamo.

I visited and seen this for the first time. It is a beautiful site to see, all the names of those lost on 911 are forever etched in the memorial for all to see. It was very touching to see this and take photos. Many people were also here to see it. Also the views of the new Freedom Tower... More

If you look at the lead picture, this memorial is nice from that angle, or if you are between the 2 walls it is impressive, but from the outside it is kind of an eye sore. Located in Liberty State Park, adjacent to the Railroad Terminal and next to the Ferry to go to the Statue of Liberty, it is... More

The monument is worth taking in. We found some tourists somewhat disrespectful with big smiling and elaborate photo poses in front of the monument.....it's not Times Square, it should be treated with respect.
