Beautiful 9-11 memorial, the location next to the water provides not only a stunning visual of the city but also a calming place to sit and remember those who lost their lives on that day years ago.

I recommend this attraction but be forwarded it is very emotional especially when you see the names of people you have known that died in the attack. It is very well maintained and just a short walk from the SI Ferry, so easily accessible to all.

Peaceful, a tribute well done to those who lost their lives that day from Staten Island. Is a easy walk from the ground level north entrance to Staten Island Ferry.

Right near the Staten Island Ferry & Richmond County Ball Park (SI Yankees A ball) the memorial is tastefully done to honor the men & woman the died in the attacks of September 11th, 2001 who were from Staten Island (My cousin is part of this memorial). As a member of the NYPD, the memorial is steps away from where... More

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.
