    World Trade Center Memorial
    We have been here several times while visiting Manhattan. We have never hired a tour guide to take us here. We always take the subway. There are several subway stops along the way that leave you near this majestic spot. If touring the museum is on your list, I suggest purchasing the tickets online. With the exception of the museum, this is obviously an opened space, very large indeed! There’s a small outdoor kiosk where they sell 911 memorabilia for the museum. Don’t forget to snap a pic of the survivor tree.

    Sombre, moving, very well considered memorial
    must do activity for us. well thought out, well maintained with lots of staff on hand to ensure visitors remain respectful. A good balance of remembrance for a truly awful event and reminding us that we all share the same earth. Very moving and there is a museum for anyone who wants to know more about what happened, which i guess may become more important as years pass.

    Lovely tribute
    Very calm and peaceful area. Clean, well spaced and not crowded. A classy memorial that is beautifully simplistic. Definitely worth going to, the museum staff around the memorial are very friendly and able to answer questions. The survivor tree is something to look out for.

    Stop And Remember
    I would recommend a visit to the World Trade Center Memorial Foundation on a visit to New York City. I think it's important to remember this tragic event in the history of the USA and that this should never happen again. On the site of the two towers there are now two huge fountains with water pouring into the holes and further below. Around the edge of the fountains are the names of the people who died during the terrorist attacks in 2001. When I visited the area was quite busy and over all people were being respectful about the memorial. Please be kind to one another so that there is more love in the world.

    I cried. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
    My wife and were visiting NYC December 22, 2023 to January 1, 2024. We were staying in the midtown area, but one thing we had to do was visit the site of the tragedy of 9-11. We had been to this spot in 2008. Back then there was a huge hole in the ground with construction equipment and workers all over at the bottom. There was a temporary constructed walkway around the hole at that time. We talked with several people who had been there when it happened. It was emotional then, back in 2008. So now on Christmas Eve day, 2023 we were back. The memorial pools are so beautifully done as is the park setting around it. I don't know about others, but I enjoyed being here to see this while at the same time crying for all those lives lost. The horror of the aftermath, the dedication of the heroes who died trying to save lives and those who survived to tell their stories. Everyone should plan to make a pilgrimage here at least once in their lives. I believe the emotions it brings forth by just being here to experience it will make you want to reach out to friends and promote peace for the rest of your life.

I went in August 22. Phew. It’s beautifully executed, sad in abundance and all consuming. Combined with the museum it just pulls you apart. It’s extraordinary. Emotional , unifying and incredibly moving.

Emotional. Moving. High Security. My absolutely favourite visit while in New York. There is no charge, no entrance fee. There are subway stops nearby to get to and from. There is a target nearby to pick up some food and drink. Do also visit the Survivors Star Sculpture.

there are 2 big ponds with water continuously flowing down, and with the victims' names written on the edge, it's a peaceful place and you can do some meditation
