This 911 memorial is located in Eagle Rock Reservation, close to the High Lawn Pavilion Restaurant - While a very moving memorial, it's a very "quick-see". Parking is easy and close, a walking self guided tour that takes at most 30 minutes if you read...More

A place to remember and provide inspiration to people. I read about Eagle Rock Reservation and had to visit. I was not disappointed. The view of the Manhattan Skyline is a plus.

An impressive 911 memorial with a view overlooking the Manhattan skyline. This is best viewed on a clear day or evening. On the 4th of July it is a great place to view firework displays, albeit a crowded venue on that day.

The NYC Metropolis landscape never looked better. A clean and pleasant venue to remember 9-11 and then, perhaps, have a drink at the near-by Highlawn Pavilion
