So well done

Went down here last September for the anniversary of 9/11. Even after all of these years, still a moving experience.

If you stand in between the two columns, you stare directly into the place where the Twin Towers once stood. In the middle are facial profiles of the Staten Island victims of 9-11 - which included many firefighters, police officers, and ordinary people who took the ferry to work that morning and never returned home that night.

Rode the ferry over and then checked this out. It was about a 10 min walk over here from the ferry station. The memorial was very nice, cool, and sad all at the same time. Sad because 9/11, nice and cool because of the way it's set up. They have each persons name/ occupation on the slabs and then they... More

Every New Yorker and all tourists should visit this 9/11 memorial for innocent staten islanders who lost their lives on 9/11. Never Forgot 9/11. Beautiful Views of Manhattan.

Upon arriving in the area, we drove around and stopped to look at Staten island Yankee Stadium. We saw the memorial and walked down to the waterfront to see it. Very moving. The profiles of each resident who lost their life on 9/11 is on a granite plaque listing their name, birth date, and where they worked at the time... More

Get off the Staten Island Ferry. The monument that pays tribute to the community that lost the most citizens from the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack. Every victim has an accurate silhouette picture with their name. It is a humbling experience to stand at the location. It brings a large crowd every September 11 for the anniversary.

Great memorial to visit. It is located close to the ferry and is free. Amazing to read the names and lives that were lost on that awful day in New York City.

Overlooking the harbor....where the Towers onfe stood...where Islanders watched in horror as the towers tumbled. Every victim has a stone with their name where you can keave a small flower or note.

This memorial, aligned with the former location of the twin towers in Manhattan does a good job of paying tribute to those lost in 9/11, particularly in a borough that had so many first responders. The memorial is not the most spectacular memorial, or one that beckons you to make a special trip to visit, but it is definitely a... More

If you are taking the ferry as a tourist get out and walk towards the parking lot. It is a quick walk from the terminal and a beautiful sight. Take a break from the touristy stuff and get some fresh air with beautiful views. I don't recommend walking much further than the monument as the area gets pretty bad. There... More
