  • Visited with my husband who is very proud of his Irish heritage! Was great place, very pretty and the headline around were eye opening.  more »
  • Visited 11-24-17 Mom and 2 adult children 25 and 27. This is a must do if you are of Irish heritage. Make sure you leave time to read all the passages etched into the glass blocks on all sides of the ...  more »
  • I wouldn't recommend making a trip just to see this memorial, but if you're in the area (i.e. near the World Trade Center memorial), it's definitely worth a visit. It's a poignant and moving reminder ...  more »

  • Quite a nice memorial, which is certainly worth a visit. There is, also, the rather delectable (or, if you prefer, mildly painful) irony that the memorial stands in the imposing shadow of the towering headquarters of Goldman Sachs, just behind it on West Street. But that is just an aside; if you're thinking of going, you should absolutely go. It is certainly worth your time.
  • I stumbled upon this memorial and it's very unique designed and well maintained. There was someone planting something in the memorial when I visited. At the top of the memorial there are some very nice views.
  • Very cool structure. I understood it's made from bricks from an actual Irish structure and transported to New York. It really stands out because it's as if someone ripped an entire section of land from Ireland and just put in the middle of the street. There are no information panels; you have to download an app so if you don't have data this means looking for free WiFi first.
  • Interesting structure right in the middle of the string. You can walk up the path to get great views on Hudson River and Jersey City and back on the New York.
  • I visited so many times this memorial, always wake up on me deep thoughts , and feelings, thinking on what happened years ago.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
