If you are in the Jersey City area,... More

Make sure you pre-purchase your tickets so you don/t have to stand in line. Wished there were not as many people. was hard to move and see everything, It was still worth seeing. Hope to come back when there is not as many people.

This is a beautiful , respectful memorial with a view of where all the horrors occurred. Its within the lovely Liberty State Park park just a short ferry ride from Battery park if you start from NYC.
