A beautiful tribute to Staten Islanders lost on 9/11

We visited this monument after a Staten Island Yankees game. It is on the walkway behind the stadium. Facing the walkway and the NYC skyline makes this memorial breathtaking.

It is located a few steps from the SI Ferry so give yourself a little time before or after catching your ferry to pay tribute and/or reflect on the memories of that day that are forever etched in our minds.

A somber and emotionally moving place to start before visiting the 911 Memorial and Museum in Manhattan. When you look down the center of the "Postcards", you see One World Trade Center (1776 Building/Freedom Tower). Both sites are a must see for every U.S. citizen!!

Step back from the memorial and look down the center, you see Freedom Tower. This is a well thought out memorial with the names of the individuals from Staten Island that were lost that day engraved in bricks. Just steps from the Staten Island Ferry Terminal. Avoid the crowds of the World Trade Center and stop here for some reflection.

The postcards memorial commemorates Staten Islanders lost in the tragedy at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Profile photos of those lost makes a fitting tribute. The tribute lines up with Manhattan and gives a feeling of connection to the event. It is a calming spot that is walking distance to the Staten Island Ferry. Very moving.

Staten Island was triple-hit by the World Trade Center attack. We were downtown Manhattan workers, firefighters & police. So many died and continue to die from their exposure to this physical & mental ordeal. We remember. At "Postcards" each person is remembered as they were - their photo, their employer, their position - all ages, from worker to President, a... More

The memorial itself is very nice but obviously sad. The area is a nice place to go visit right behind the Staten Island Yankees ball park and walking distance from the ferry.

This is worth the lovely walk along the boardwalk to the memorial. just like the Manhattan memorial very sad and poignant. I did not know about this memorial until a few years ago. It is beautifully sculptured and the names of the people are there for you to read. Single flowers lay near names. There are benches that you can... More

2 large white monuments with names on it. So many fire fighters lost there life's. The monument is to remember the first response team that went in to help. It's next to the Yankee stadium. There is seats in a shaded area and seats by the south facing view over the river. A small place but worth taking the time... More

When I first went after it was opened.. people would leave letters, flowers, even gold chains and pictures. Nobody I mean Nobody moved or bothered these items. That was very nice, very nice to see. If your taking a day trip over to staten island this is a great place to stop by near the ferry!
