The way this memorial has been designed and completed is awe-inspiring. A very special way to honour the victims.

Such a sad place although it is beautiful and well looked after. The reality and enormity of this special place hits you straight away, it is a very humbling experience but you have to visit and send up a prayer

It is a very busy but very beautiful and meaningful memorial. I think it is a well done tribute to those who lost their lives.

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.

of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis
