So beautiful. The area where they engraved all of the names of the people who died that day was breathtaking. I was watching the engravers do each little letter so precise and perfect. Great experience

A truly powerful and sobering memorial of the events from September 11, 2001. Our family lost a dear friend in that tragic event.

This museum was created to help us remember those whom have been taken during this awful tragedy. It does just that and it provides a beautiful memorial right in front of the One Worlds trade center.

Tons of security! Easy to find, the Memorial is free. You must check the weather before.

Memorial area for people who lost their lives during September 11. Park officer places a stalk of flower on the person's tablet whose birthday happen to be on that day. There is also the tree of life nearby with 2 security guards.

The Twin Towers use to rise above the NYC skyline, September 11 forever changed that. The Freedom Tower stands for the height and on the ground is the beautiful memorial that spans the circumference of the tower. The depth of the waterfall reflects the stories deep also affected. It is a sober place, people reading the names of those lives lost, etched in marble. It is definitely a wonderful place to visit. Trade Center One is already built and Tower Two half way up. They will not be the height of the original towers but I am glad to see them rebuilt. The nearby firehouse 10 is also dedicated as a memorial to the Firefighters and the station first on scene. A beautiful bronzed wall is picturesque of that day. Much is free to the public, however there is a memorial that costs a fee to go inside. I truly recommend for everyone to take the time to visit this memorial.

Beautiful waterfall pools replace the fallen towers. Names etched in the borders if all the lives lost. There was one tree that survived the attacks, and they lovingly erected a fence around it.

The tallest building on the right ... This memorial is jaw-dropping and emotionally stunning. Unfortunately, not everyone is respectful .... However, the scale and the simplicity juxtapose perfectly to provide an experience you won't soon forget. Please note: this review does not include the museum .

They did a great job with the 9/11 memorial. It is a must see when you travel to NY. The reflecting pools are breath taking and seeing the roses by people's names for their birthdays is heartwarming. It's yet a somber experience but you can't miss if while you are there. Should be #1 on your list.

People will always remember where they were during the September 11 attacks. Every time I am in New York, I always stop by and pay my respects to the lives lost on that fateful day.

A stunning but haunting memorial to the moment that changed the world forever. The inside of the memorial has in depth overviews of the events that led to 911, but also a very inspiring message about how NYC have responded since! A must see site - very highly recommended!
