Touching and well designed tribute to the New Jersey victims of 9/11. If your in Liberty State Park you should make this a stop during your trip.

The Memorial at Liberty State Park is very sobering and a reminder as you look between the walls where the Towers once stood. The names entered are those souls from NJ who had lost their lives needlessly on 9-11-2001. Please do visit when there and say a prayer for the departed but not forgotten.

Near the Liberty State Park. Has beautiful views of NYC (and this is a key part of how they laid out this memorial). If you view it just right you see the Freedom Tower and its reflection on one of the walls.

Though it's still considered an active gravesite, and place of a national tragedy, just being there made me feel patriotic and honored to be among citizens of the World, paying tribute to those who lost their lives that day. Having gone to the original twin towers and experiencing the observation deck, shops and restaurants before 9/11, it's bittersweet, but I... More

I love the design, but most of all I like the quiet respect in the area where you can contemplate the loss of so many, as well as how much people have given, to rebuild, to bring to justice, to remember. Located in Liberty State Park, there is usually ample free parking, and there are lots of outdoors things to... More

I go for my daily run through Liberty State Park, and always had the same path. One day to expand the distance I ran to the waters edge and found this monument, or at least, it found me. Now it's a part of my daily run and seeing people walk through the unblemished etchings of names of those who were... More

I live nearby, so I see it often. It never fails to move me. It is a small and simple reminder of the grief of that day and all the days that followed.
