This is completely separate from the actual 9/11 site, which is where we went initially, only to be told out was several blocks away, we should have read the instructions! When we did get there, it's a doorway on a main shopping street near the highline. You have to press a bell to get in. We had a really interesting... More

We showed up just as Trey was closing for the day but he still allowed us to walk in and spend an amazing couple of hours in this seemingly hidden gem of a museum. Stunning photography and some artifacts that move you beyond belief. These are coupled with the story behind each and every one told by Gary in your... More

As someone who spent 30 years in law enforcement, this is a must place to visit when in the city. You will need a good 3 hours to see and read everything from that day in history. Very sobering experience of reality, done very well on one of the worst events to happen in history.

We visited the 911 Memorial Museum at ground zero directly before this workshop. We much prefer the 911 workshop. Why? I found the 911 Memorial musuem had many personal belongings of the people that died on that day, which I found disturbing. The 911 workshop museum was much more focused on the recovery after the attack. It captured the spirit,... More

Fascinating collection of artefacts from Ground Zero collected by the official photographer to Ground Zero. Wonderful introduction to Ground Zero that not many experienced first-hand. Best thing is some of the profits from the museum are continually donated to charities associated with Ground Zero.

Photographer Gary Suson recap of the Ground Zero recovery process puts one at the site. Gary's photographs & stories help you understand & attempt to feel what the workers felt during this long emotional & physical draining recovery effort. Museums only downfall, it lacked signage, I walked passed the place a few times before someone finally put a sign on... More

First off, you need quite a bit of time to do this museum justice. We were, unfortunately, rushed for time. We spent a lot of time in the first part of the museum. While definitely worthwhile, we didn't realize until it was too late that the "heart" of the museum is at the end with the rooms filled with things... More

The story of 9/11 is told very well and the personal stories re moving. A very thought provoking and memorable visit.

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
