  • 1. Even though you're not an American like me, it is worth to visit this place. This place is not only about the American history but also about 'human being's history. Actually, I had expected that this was just a cemetery for African Americans. However, while I watched some film in the visitor center, I deeply moved and understood why it was so important. I strongly recommend visiting it. 2. All staffs are very kind and gentle. Most park rangers who I met are usually great. Park rangers there are the most dedicated in my opinion. Thanks to them, all of us learned a lot of things there. I can never forget them. 3. If you have children, they can earn Junior rangers badges there after completing booklets. It is helpful to read a junior ranger booklet(you can download it) before visiting. JR program is not picky. Kids can find answers easily in the museum. Also a park ranger explains it to kids very kindly. Awesome.
  • I love discovering new places and I was moved and touched seeing this, if you are near it, please stop by and remember the travesty of yesteryear
  • A great honor and pride. IA sacred place extremely emotional to see the my Ancestors which built New York City in the 1700s.
  • It is just a memorial. No biggie but if you have 2 minutos ti spare, you might as well pop up
  • Amazing but sad 😞
