A touching, mesmerizing exhibit and hands-on experience, I think this is a perfect example of love and respect for human life. Being an overly-emotional lady, I could only handle watching and taking in my surroundings for so long before I had to turn and walk...More

This attraction is very well done. So much to see and hear. Very sad but educational experience. Have never experienced so many people and so quiet an atmosphere. Everyone should experience this attraction both as as educational and a reminder of our fragile freedoms.

First off - This workshop/museum should not be confused with the 'main' 9-11 memorial museum. This smaller museum is a record of the post event story told through the lens and personal experiences of a photographer granted unique access to the site during the post...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
