Attraction details
Reviewed 17 February 2015

I visited here last month both at night and during the day and it was beautiful, this tribute to those who died on the day of 911 from Staten Island is amazing and well worth visiting. It is walking distance from the Staten Island Ferry terminal.

The memorial is very simple yet very poignant. There are postcards from the families of the victims of 9/11 telling of their pain.

exiting the ferry, go right and walk down the esplanade til you reach the memorial. It is a white structure shaped similar to the old World Trade Center but curving. Inside the structure, the Sept. 11, 2001 deceased from Staten Island are commemorated. May their memory be eternal.

A moving tribute to our lost love ones against a backdrop Manhattan where all the devastation occurred.

Postcards is in a beautiful, serene setting just down the promenade from the Staten Island ferry terminal. The memorial itself is to the Staten Island residents who died on September 11th. The two white sculptures almost look like wings, carrying the souls away. The inside of each large structure is lined with individual marble "postcards." Each card is an individual tribute, with name, dates, and where each person worked. What makes this so incredibly moving is that one vertical side of each card is shaped in the person's profile. Very sobering. It's kind of difficult to explain how this is set up, but it is definitely worth seeing. Even though I don't know anyone from Staten Island who died that day, this memorial is so incredibly moving for me because Postcards is so intimate and personal .
