Right next to the si ferry, it's a very beautiful memorial, a nice peaceful walkway and a nice view of the freedom towers

As a native Staten Islander, I don't count this as an "ATTRACTION"...However, this is a very special place. It's a memorial that lists the names of every Staten Islander that perished on 9/11.

I sometimes sit here on nice days in the spring/summer because it's typically serene, and you can actually reflect on the changed view of the downtown, which remains scenic...but very different.

However, every time I'm there, there's always tourists taking pictures yelling or tourist teenagers jumping on the memorial. I don't think anyone who visits this as an "attraction" really understands the point of the memorial or what the view used to be..... Why it's a special place....

When you look through the center of the beautiful Postcards, your mind goes back to the time that the World Trade Center would have been standing proudly right there. Now it is just a memory but this Memorial is so touching with it's silhouettes of those lost that horrible day who hailed from Staten Island. It stands out as a tribute to all we lost that day.

We walked along the path towards here, having just come across on the SI ferry for the experience. It was very moving and beautiful.

I just love this memorial. It's simple and touching. It's a short distance from the ferry and has a great view.
