Honestly, we had no idea this memorial existed. We stumbled upon it when visiting Liberty Park. It is so perfect, somber, haunting, beautiful. The photographs you can take are absolutely stunning! I would definitely come back or tell everyone about this not well known memorial to 9/11. A must see!

The names of NJ casualties of 9-11 are engraved on the walls of the memorial - a stark reminder that it was not NY alone who suffered. Many New Jersey workers commute from here daily, and many died. We saw the horror on TV - they saw it in person, and many came home to empty places around their dinner... More

It's a beautiful and yet sad place at the same time. I always go there to reflect and pray for the victims of 9/11 and for our country. It has that beautiful New York skyline view and the memorial itself is amazing. It has the victims names engraved on its walls.

I had read about the memorial and took my group to see it. I loved how all the names are done. You can touch each name. What was moving to me was how many names were from all over the world, all are there to unite us in remembering that horrible day.

Views over river to NYC where twin towers were situated Not different to any other 911 memorial apart from fewer crowds

When you visit the Liberty State Park make sure you take the time to visit this memorial near the New Jersey Terminal site. The monument was erected to honor those New Jersey citizens who perished on 9/11. The concept of the monument is to frame the sky space that once held the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center. Awe... More

There used to stand twin tower, but not anymore. This is a place to think about what used to be there and fainted now.

What a fablous walk we had on this a amazing structure. An old railway line which is now disused and they have made it into a fantastic walk for everyone, all walks of life, all ages. The environment changes every step you take. We will do it Back.
