Empty Sky can touch emotions in most people. Remembering friends lost during 9/11 and touching the steel girder from the World Trade Center brought tears. God speed FDNY

Really beautiful and different memorial. Great design that makes you experience the disappearances of the twin towers. Also great views of the new skyline. We walked from Jersey City, long but relaxing. You can catch the ferry back to Warren Street.

My apology for the delay - I found the place quiet safe and maybe 15 people visiting as well - primarily couples and families - For us - the view was breath taking - Hope this helps

Yes, there is a free area to park for a limited time to park which is enough for the memorial. If you want to go to Ellis and/or Liberty Island you will need to park in the paid lot.
