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.

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.

A moving tribute to our lost love ones against a backdrop Manhattan where all the devastation occurred.

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.
