Our group decided after dinner to go see the 911 site. We took the subway there, which was real easy. It gave me goose bumps and thoughts of the images flooded back. Very well worth it to see.

This monument appears to be a salute by New Jersey to the 911 Memorial. With its location so special, being on the water overlooking New York City. It is very well done and makes you appreciate the monument!

We left from NJ to see the Statue of Liberty. This was an extra benefit to the trip. I didnt know it was here until we saw it. You can look at it from a distance and it reminds you of the gapping hole where...More

Visited here coupled with a trip to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. Solemn in nature and introspective - it’s a sight to behold and reflect upon.

It's hard to give a great rating to this, so I gave above average because I've seen so many memorials. I know there is so much wrapped up in this memorial, memories for many people, sadness...it's hard to visit these and not feel something. But...More

This is especially haunting for those of us who lived in Jersey City in the era of the Twin Towers. This memorial stands in that place where our view of the towers would have been today if still there.

Yes, there is a free area to park for a limited time to park which is enough for the memorial. If you want to go to Ellis and/or Liberty Island you will need to park in the paid lot.

Very accessible parking lot is close to the memorial. We got confused and paid to park in the wrong lot. Drive past the pay lot to memorial parking. The views on a clear day are quite something.
