Should be on a Must See list to visit by all ages. Visit and experience what the new immigrants went through arriving in our country. Great picture ops too.

I went here for the first time in September 2015, this is such an amazing place to visit, knowing what happened right there in that exact spot. I would recommend this to anybody visiting New York. It's a must.

A great idea given the location. My boys thought it was great and were able to learn a bit more about September 11th. The park is really nice as well.

My Mother and my aunt are both in their 80s and have difficulty walking. They would like to visit the memorial. How close is handicap parking or is there a way to buy tickets ahead of time and be able to drop them off near the memorial?

Very accessible parking lot is close to the memorial. We got confused and paid to park in the wrong lot. Drive past the pay lot to memorial parking. The views on a clear day are quite something.
