Haven’t been here before and the view of Manhattan was great. Really highlighted midtown and downtown. The 911 memorial was really good to see and seeing all the names makes you realise how many people died. The monument to all the sniffer dogs was good...More

A restaurant overlooks the city. Great view but you will pay for it. Expensive but well worth it for a special occasion. The park is awesome for hiking and the 9/11 memorial is a fitting addition for rememberance and reflection.

My husband and I go every year for the memorial of 911. It's a place to feel comfort and a place to silently remember and pray for those who we lost that very warm and sunnny day on 9/11

This 911 memorial is located in Eagle Rock Reservation, close to the High Lawn Pavilion Restaurant - While a very moving memorial, it's a very "quick-see". Parking is easy and close, a walking self guided tour that takes at most 30 minutes if you read...More

A place to remember and provide inspiration to people. I read about Eagle Rock Reservation and had to visit. I was not disappointed. The view of the Manhattan Skyline is a plus.

As West Orange Native, I’ve always enjoyed being able to ride my motorcycle up to the overlook and snap a couple shots of the distant city skyline. Great place to go hike on the paths through the woods, or get some exercise riding your bike...More

Visit here a few times a year. The beauty, skyline and scenery are truly majestic. This was one of the first 911 memorials built and completed after the attack. Simple, understated and easily appealing to the eye, a must see when in this area. People...More

Eagle Rock is a good place to catch moonrise over Manhatten when the weather allows. On a good night, it is crowded with little parking. You have to come early to get a place at the wall amongst all the photographers. Sometimes it's a spectacular...More

The best photo ops are around the 9/11 memorial and behind and upper floor of the High Mountain Pavilion restaurant.
