  • I stopped by with my colleague. On the shores of this business district, and Memorial Park is standing majestically, decorated with beautiful tulips. Engraved names and ages of the people who fell victim to and from New York and joined the Viet Nam war. Most of them had appealed in the quiet gloom of war, 10 units, 20 units in the first half. Consisting of a large glass wall, maybe a family letter is engraved. Over more than 70 years in Japan does not put the casualties of war, but United States is still at the forefront of conflict around the world, has been sacrificed many young lives. This monument will never glorify war or a place to praise the people who became victims should not be felt strongly.

  • Not frequently visited but worth the stop if nearby. The letters are very poignant and beautiful. Second time we have stopped there and we are usually alone at the memorial.  more »
  • Simple yet powerful kind of Memorial that is. Located in the southernmost part of Manhattan, close to battery Park. Located in park-like area a bit wider space, built the Memorial. I think wall has strong appeal.

  • Perfect mixture of concrete and water. Located on the coast of East river surrounded by corporate giants it is quite spectacular. Just seating there is like finding peace with in u.
  • As a former military man myself, i feel great honor and a sense of brotherhood with those that served in Vietnam as did my uncle.
  • Nice place to get food from food cart and eat. And enjoy watching the water helicopter view. Good place
  • Happy Memorial Day. Thanks for the sacrifices of our soldiers and their families for giving so much so selflessly of themselves for.our brighter tomorrow's. God Bless America. Thank you to my brother ... Herminio N. Sempre Fi. We love you!
  • It's good to have a space where you can just sit and do nothing for a few minutes. This is one of those spaces and is located in an area full of buildings. And it's near the water, if you like to see more of nature.

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.
