A must see

I can only say that this is a beautifully moving place. Don't miss it if you are in The area. We had been a few years earlier, but wanted to see it again.

2 hour Parking is available at this site. This memorial does an excellent job of connecting New York City to Jersey. It's positioned to show how the towers stood on the opposite shore of the Hudson. The walls of the memorial are so tall they create a tunnel type feeling. When you look down the tunnel and across the river... More

From Brooklyn we drove in the early hours to the Liberty State park NJ side. Online booking for the Liberty Island was done. After parking at the lot had a quick breakfast and once we enter there is an old railway engine on the track and then parallel buildings with names written on the walls. They stand majestic and the... More

Many towns in northern New Jersey, and I am sure in New York and Connecticut, have bits of the Twin Towers in small memorials for the people who lived in those states and died on that terrible day. (Two men died from Franklin Lakes, for example, and there is a steel cross erected in their honor near the municipal building.)... More

This memorial is located at Liberty State Park, next to the old Central Railroad of New Jersey terminal building. It is a dedication to the residents of New Jersey who lost their lives on 9/11. When looking through the twin walls, you are looking towards the site of the World Trade Center towers. The memorial towers are the same width... More

Visiting this 9/11 memorial seemed even more profound late at night at Liberty State Park, with a view of the forever changed Manhattan skyline across the river. The memorial is dedicated to the NJ residents killed that infamous day. Two long granite walls list the names of those New Jerseyans who perished in the terrorist attacks in NYC, Washington DC...

We all know where we were that horrible day. This memorial was very nicely done to remember those lost. The view to the Freedom Tower means so much more from here

Although I am not a fan of American 'heroism' this place offers an impressive memory to one of the most shocking events in recent history. The lay out of the memorial makes you silent and contemplating what happened on that tragic day. And the museum tells the story with great respect and many unknown details. The objects on display make... More
