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!

It's a very nice place, the monument is very beautiful, but if you are not in the neighborhood, there is no reason to come.

When you get off the Staten Island Ferry it is right there. Do both together - they are both free. It is thought provoking with beautiful views. I went on Sept 10 and it was adorned with flowers. Many people in uniform were there. Parking is about 7.00 or you can attempt to find street parking but not a wise... More

A short walk from the St George Staten Island Ferry Terminal, this memorial can be easily accessed by walking or by wheelchair in less than 10 minutes.

The sillouette by each name and the job they did was great. At the time we went it was tough to get to. A lot of construction.

A few hundred feet from the ferry exit is this touching 911 memorial. You can see Downtown Manhattan from there. I saw the towers come down near that spot. The Memorial contains photos of the deceased and is quite memorable. Buy food in the ferry terminal and eat on benches on the nearby boardwalk. A real beauty of a memorial.

This is a beautiful memorial right across from where the towers stood. It's a very reflective place.

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.
