This is an appropriate memorial of the victims of 9-11, beautifully framing the spot of the former World Trade Center. Very quiet / peaceful / reflective area.

This a beautiful spot from which to view the New York harbor and the southern tip of Manhattan. The monument itself guides the eye toward the spot where the Towers stood before the terrorist attack.

The angle of the construction and the view just gives you perspective of the magnitude of the tragedy. I prefer the silence and peace of this memorial to send a respectful moment of meditation to remember the inocent people that were lost.

It is wonderful that Staten Island was one of the first memorials to be completed. The profiles of the Staten Islanders who perished on 9/11/01 was a great tribute to them.
