Inspirock Rating:
4.8/5 based on 6,000+ reviews on the web
Pay your respects to the thousands of lives lost to terrorism at Ground Zero Memorial. Long artificial waterfalls drop into two reflecting pools, surrounded by bronze panels inscribed with the names of those who perished. Designed by Michael Arad and Peter Walker, the memorial honors not only the 3,000 people killed in the attacks of September 11, 2001, but also six persons who lost their lives in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. The pools sit exactly in the place where the Twin Towers once stood. Note the healthy limbs of a pear tree that survived the attack, stretching victoriously from its recovered gnarled trunk.

  • A place of rememberance and reflection as to how fragile life is. A beautiful memorial to all who lost their lives in 9/11 a must see 
  • What a beautiful memorial. It's one thing to see photos or footage, and another thing to see it in person. It was a nice spot to reflect on not just that day, but life in general. 
  • The area is beautiful, fascinating pools, with all the engraved names and the white roses. You put the willies. Worth seeing it
