What a gorgeous memorial. We will never forget. A magnificant view to the One World trade center. The artist created an unforgetable memorial.

Both the Empty Sky and Teardrop (near the cruise ship terminal at Cape Liberty) memorials to 9/11 are very moving and emotional sites. The teardrop memorial was donated by Russia.

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.
