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!

When you stand back and see they out line of the towers against the NYC skyline it is amazingly sad and moving.

Don't miss this if you come to Liberty State Park, as it may be overlooked as you're entranced by the Manhattan skyline

Easy to find, a place for reflection even though construction work nearby. Dislike having to write at least 100 characters.

Visited this monument when at a function in Liberty Park. Very simple but evocative memorial to victims of the 9/11 tragedy. Highly emotional and set in beautiful surroundings.

Was unaware of this site until a friend visited there just a few months ago. An excellent place to contemplate the events of 9/11. No big crowds, even on a summer weekday. Lots of parking (paid) at Liberty State Park. Most folks will head for the boat to Liberty, but if you stroll to the north east corner of park... More
