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.

Being a life long police officer I cannot say enough good things about NJ creating this unique memorial and placing it in an accessible and relative area where people can visit for little or no money.

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.
