We only had 2 days in New York so we weren't able to see the museum of the 9/11 but we were able to see this and it was such beautifully displayed and the park setting is surreal.

George Washington prayed here! Saw a gravestone that said 1732. Very historic. We just stepped in and looked around quickly.

If you enjoy historic buildings and cemeteries then you will love a visit to this little chapel. It is just a quick walk from the 9/11 memorial.

The effort that has gone into the design and features, is something else!!! Water falls, lights, name after name lines the granite. Not one person who lost their lives in this very sad disaster has been forgotten!!!! White roses are randomly placed to honour those,...More

Another New York Surprise was this Catholic Memorial dedicated to 911. Tastefully and respectfully appointed, ladies need to cover your head in respect of the church.
