My husband and I had taken the ferry to get into the city that day and when we got off I mentioned that the Postcards Memorial was right next to us. So before we went to our car we took the short walk over to check out the memorial. There is no line or entrance to get in. It is... More

Everyone needs to come here and absorb the atmosphere created by this memorial. It is like stepping into another world, the air just feels different. It is a beautiful place to feel peace, the view is spectacular. Be sure to walk along the explanade and just esperience the feelings that it all brings.

STATEN ISLAND NY - Surprise and awe were one traveling couple's reactions to the discovery, during an impromptu trip to Staten Island in April 2014, of the gracefully designed and peaceful Staten Island September 11 Memorial. It is a place to sit and reflect on the that day's tragic events and lives lost, but it also is a quiet and... More

The design looks like the wings of an angle, between the wings on both sides of the wall are lined with the names and some photographs of the people that lost their life in that tragic time. Each engraved plaque has the profile of a face, no two faces are alike. The space between the wings when you stand in... More

It's nice to see this memorial, but don't visit this area after dark. Don't be fooled by the come-ons you see advertising tourism on Staten Island. This area is called St. George, and it's a business district during the day, and a hellhole at night.

A moving tribute to those Staten Islanders lost on September 11, 2001. The two postcards contain silhouettes of the victims of the WTC attack. When looking at the monument towards Manhattan, the two halves frame the location of the towers and now of the new Number 1 WTC. The exhibit is adjacent to the Staten Island Ferry Terminal in St....

As a native Staten Islander, I don't count this as an "ATTRACTION"...However, this is a very special place. It's a memorial that lists the names of every Staten Islander that perished on 9/11. I sometimes sit here on nice days in the spring/summer because it's typically serene, and you can actually reflect on the changed view of the downtown, which... More

When you look through the center of the beautiful Postcards, your mind goes back to the time that the World Trade Center would have been standing proudly right there. Now it is just a memory but this Memorial is so touching with it's silhouettes of those lost that horrible day who hailed from Staten Island. It stands out as a... More
