We took the 911 All Access Tour and this is where we began. The history of the church is very interesting and it was truly a miracle that the church survived the attack.

It was a very sombre visit - but a beautiful and serene site now. From the serenity pools to the remaining tree to the chapel that survived damage - there are no words to describe the experience. This is something everyone should see.

This was part of a trip to New England finishing in New York, I was pleased to have visited the facility, and you have to add this as part of the Ground Zero experience

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis

Three hours was needed to really see and take in everything that the museum has to offer. A good hour is needed outside to appreciate what happened there, to see the reflecting pools in the footprints of the original towers... More
