  • It is free, and just sitting there with apparently no signage. We walked in see what appreared to be a garden up top. As you start to look at the inscription along each wall you begin to realize what ...  more »
  • The Memorial is located in Downtown Manhattan and tells about the famine in Ireland in the mid-19 century. Here you can immerse yourself in a briefly Irish landscape with stone cottage, potato field and 32 blocks (one for each province of Ireland). We did not know about its existence and came across by chance during an excursion to the Memorial 9/11. The entry here is absolutely free.

  • Not far from the area of the Memorial of the September 11, this small and charming park remembers, in a clean and cared for, how much Ireland there is in new York and the USA. Definitely worth a visit

  • Closed until Spring 2017, but... I love this place. From the quotes to the information about the famine and the efforts made to lessen its effects to the beautiful quiet landscape, it's worth a side journey for some beauty and quietude in the middle of this busy place.
  • One of the best and most beautiful hidden parks in NYC. Just a step away from the WTC it's a little oasis of calm. Tastefully done and a genuinely respectful memorial to a tragic piece of Ireland's history.
  • It's a cute little memorial, and while it's certainly nothing worth coming downtown for, if you're walking along the water, it's worth taking a quick detour for. It's well done, and while I didn't quite get it at first, after going to the UK and Ireland two years ago, it does actually seem appropriate for the hilly country side with the stones.
  • Really nice views and definitely a good bit of history to read.
  • Wow - what an overlooked piece of the city. If you go here and get just the right angle, you feel as though you are in Ireland (as long as there aren't any construction cranes in your line of site). Definitely check this place out if you are in the area.
