“remembering the victims of 9/11”
This is for anyone who lost loved ones or want to help with anything to do with the tragic attack of September 11, 2001.
A beautiful memorial... I found it incredibly moving and an immensely powerful experience to just sit there and let the enormity and significance of the memorial soak in. I will make a point of visiting every time Im in NYC.
There are twin reflecting pools which have the names of the 2,983 people who died on 9/11, and the names of the victims of the 1993 bombing. The memorial is free, but the number of daily visitors is limited. But once you're in, you welcome to stay as long as the memorial is open (til 8PM).
The museum is not open yet but the memorial is. Expect high security (airport style body scanners, etc.) and long lines. Purchase your tickets before you go to save time waiting in line.
Very well done. Go. Hear the personal stories of that awful day. No visit to NYC is complete without adding this to your itinerary.
As an American, visiting this memorial will have a very real impact on you. It's massive and it's beautiful, and has a peaceful effect on you. Words can't really describe the experience, but it's one you have to experience (I put this on the top of the list of things tourists need to do in NYC). Buy tickets online ahead of time, where you can also make a donation.
A truly incredible memorial, down to what you learn about human bravery and the touching/inspiring design. Get tickets ahead of time online.
The museum is full of videos, audio recordings, building pieces, vehicles, etc. you could spend at least half a day looking at it all. It can be quite emotional so bring tissue. Your tickets, which should be purchased online have an arrival time. Make sure you get there then as you and your "group" all go through security and a film in the beginning.
