Beyond moving. To be standing there is so humbling. Seeing the names etched on the ledge of the monument, really strikes you. I had to walk away for a second to gather myself.

This was a very moving experience but totally necessary for me to do, I dearly wanted to visit the ground zero and say a little prayer for those poor souls that died , very sad but I wouldn't have not done it.

A place to visit and pay silent tribute to the memory of all the people who sadly fell victim on 9/11. Very moving place . Let's not forget.

The fountain going the wrong way--down, down into nothingness--and all those names engraved in the little stone wall (railing) above it make this an incredible experience. Names from every ethnicity on earth--very NY. People put flowers on names of loved ones. You can see them. You don't know if the dead person was an executive or someone who mopped floors.... More

here you will have a place for reflection on not just 9/11 but all the conflicts that life throws at you. The entrance was easy to find after following the signs but do stroll through the grounds first and sit here for a while and relax. Peace be with you.

It is a historic place now. So kind of 'must see'. I wish there was some explanation to say why it is made the way it is. The significance of the place is known. But what does the pond (?) signifify is not clear.

We visited Ground Zero on our visit to New York last September in the financial district just below the new building TOWER ONE the highest in New York better views than Empire State building from the very top 102 floor... a fantastic lift inside while heading to top floor 102 inside lift has live pictures showing the growth of buildings...

I've had strange emotions walking around the place. Stay quiet and just lived the moment. Beside the world trade center

Not sure what to write considering the history of the place, just go and see for yourself. Dont know who designed the pools but hats off to them.

A piece of our American history, nice to visit after you have toured the 9-11 memorial. Check it out after your visit.

Neighbourhood Profile
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. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
