  • This is a very simple tribute to a man who is greater than I anticipated. After visiting the Memorial, you should go to the visitor's center to be surprised at how little you probably know about this general and US President. There is a short film about his military service and his Presidency. The whole settings looks out over the Hudson and is surrounded by greenery. No horns or constant, noisy cars. A truly serene spot in a busy city. I can only say to the US National Park Service, "WELL DONE." Thank you.
  • A beautiful place to relax and enjoy the autumn. Am excellent option to escape from the craziness of Manhattan.
  • Impressive and peaceful monument. Weird opening hours and slightly creepy security - feels like an awkward enclave of the federal government in Republic of Manhattan.
  • A beautiful civil war Era moment in riverside park. Was once one of the top tourist destinations in the US.
  • Quiet, minimalist and beautiful. Worth the visit!
