From Victoria on 09/18/13

I went there quite a few times as a kid and one time I went on a school field trip there. The parts I remember best are the gallery with the photos of victims with the little tributes and the field of empty chairs. I think I still have my stuffed rescue dog from the gift shop.


From Jessica on 09/01/13

I stop by there before Sept 4th because it my biological father named Terrance R Pysh birthday and i want to honor him that he is survival during bombing and as today he is loving father to me as I'm his only child on earth so I just want to stop by I thought of him and never stop thinking of him.


From Jack Schlotte on 05/04/12

A very moving, beautiful and appropriate monument to that vivid tragedy. The people involved with the design of New York's 9-11 memorial studied this tribute for its many great ideas and inspirational message. You can't help but be moved emotionally.
