The monument is very unique and as we walked inside of it we were amazed about the particular faces and the details of its art. The whole idea was genius. The acoustic there is very interesting as well. Peaceful and sad at the same time. Honorable. Worth a visit every time we walk by.

Just a few steps off the Staten Island Ferry. Peaceful. Emotional memory trip of the 9/11 ordeal. Beautiful site and view of the Manhattan downtown skyline. If you are visiting NYC and decide to take the Staten Island Ferry, why not see this? if you are not in a rush, get off the boat and take a walk to this... More

This is a wonderful tribute to 9/11. A simple display of the victims from Staten Island, perfectly positioned to view the Manhattan skyline, and the World Trade Center. 100% worth the short walk from the ferry for a few quiet moments of reflection.

Interesting from a historical and artistic perspective. Nice view of harbor and Manhattan skyline but you could almost miss it if you don't know what you are looking for. No museum or building with artifacts. A memorial sculpture with names on plaques. Probably more meaningful to families and locals who experienced the tragedy personally. Maybe we just needed a little... More

This is a wonderful 9/11 tribute. If you are down by the water, it's worth the short walk to see it.

Very beautifully done Memorial to the 911 victims from Staten Island... Right in back of the Richmond County ballpark it overlooks lower Manhattan where most of these people lost their lives... The silhouettes are amazing... I have to give the borough president at the time James Molinaro a lot of credit ...

We took a ferry to Staten Island and we had a bit to time till the next ferry, so we decided to walk along the pier. First of all - lovely view of Manhattan!! (Hint - go there by night!). Walking distance was the memorial. Nice place.

Having lost a disproportionate amount of its citizens on Sept 11, this tasteful but powerful memorial is worth taking a few steps from the ferry to see.

I visited here last month both at night and during the day and it was beautiful, this tribute to those who died on the day of 911 from Staten Island is amazing and well worth visiting. It is walking distance from the Staten Island Ferry terminal.

The memorial is very simple yet very poignant. There are postcards from the families of the victims of 9/11 telling of their pain.
