Emotional place

Interesting place but made me feel very cold and very sad, for the people that have gone and the people that have never been found.

I wasn't thrilled about going to the place that something so tragic happened but it was a very "eye opening" experience for my 9 year old son. Completely worth it. We both learned a lot and he has a new found respect.

This is a very well done memorial that should be a must visit for anyone visiting NYC. The visit time will take at least 2-3 hrs.
