  • Very moving memorial. The fountains are breathtaking and tranquil. There are several benches nearby where you can sit and just take in the sight. Walking around and looking through each of the names is also a moving experience. I highly recommend spending a day at the museum and hearing all of the accounts of that day. Also make sure to visit the survivor tree near the fountains.
  • One of my favorite places in the city. There’s some special energy there. The fountains are beautiful and very unusual. It is a horrible tragedy that happened with the Twin towers and that so many people died so the monument is a great place to visit to give tribute, remember, and grieve for the terrorist attack. The park around is beautiful and the freedom tower is located right be the pools.
