We stopped by and visited this site and I was impressed. What a great way to honor those. The design was very smart to reflect the missing towers.

A fitting reminder for that awful day when many people where murdered. The water falls are calming giving a chance for reflection

This is a fantastic tribute to those fallen in 9/11 across the river. Liberty Park is a wonderful place to visit ... you can walk for miles with some of the most beautiful views.

Very powerful and moving composition. We visited it in the winter morning with almost no tourists. It puts you visually into perspective.

This memorial has names of victims of 9/11 bombing of towers of NYC, which brings grim memories. However, this place also presents a great opportunity for photographers to take classic shots.
