This memorial is a somber and creative tribute to Staten Islanders lost on 9/11 and will soon include first responders from the island who died later as a result of their heroics that day. It's windy, so be prepared for that. Beautiful spot.

I rode the Staten Island ferry across from Manhatten just to walk around. This is really close to the ferry terminal on the Staten Island side. Nice view, small memorial with lots of construction around.

This Memorial is beautifully designed, and a fitting tribute to the many innocent lives lost in the horrific 9/11 terrorist attack. Make sure you see the memorial from every possible angle & perspective.
