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.

exiting the ferry, go right and walk down the esplanade til you reach the memorial. It is a white structure shaped similar to the old World Trade Center but curving. Inside the structure, the Sept. 11, 2001 deceased from Staten Island are commemorated. May their memory be eternal.

Postcards is in a beautiful, serene setting just down the promenade from the Staten Island ferry terminal. The memorial itself is to the Staten Island residents who died on September 11th. The two white sculptures almost look like wings, carrying the souls away. The inside of each large structure is lined with individual marble "postcards." Each card is an individual... More

Really thoughtful tribute to the lost of 9/11 from Staten Island. The facial profiles along with their occupation brings thoughts flooding to mind. Worth the short 5 minute work from the ferry. Also poignant how it focuses you to the site of the World trade centres as you look through the gap. Well done Staten Island.

As a Partial season ticket holder of the Staten Island Yankees, I visit this 9/11 memorial at least 2 or 3 times a year, especially in the weeks leading up to the anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Center. Even though I personally don't know anyone on Staten Island who died in the terrorist attacks, I saw the... More
