Somber Memorial

I'm pleased the state erected this memorial so we don't forget what happened here on 09/11. And remember that freedom is not free.

Average.Parking is a pain and costs money. Better to see if your going to statue anyway or just go to Liberty Tower.

...now a spacious open space memorial stands honoring those that were felled by the attacks of 9/11/2001. A tree that survived the destruction stands as testament to the resolve of the people of New York & environs.

So solemn to walk this simple path and view the names here. The memorial points directly to the World Trade Center site, and is one of the jet-paths. Nice tribute on the Jersey side.

Tucked away on the Jersey City side overlooking the sight of the WTC towers previous locale is the very simple memorial. The statue of the emergency worker and the corresponding bent girder from one of the towers really makes you reflect on that day and how it impacted people throughout New York and Jersey City!
