This is a fantastic tribute to those fallen in 9/11 across the river. Liberty Park is a wonderful place to visit ... you can walk for miles with some of the most beautiful views.

Very powerful and moving composition. We visited it in the winter morning with almost no tourists. It puts you visually into perspective.

This memorial has names of victims of 9/11 bombing of towers of NYC, which brings grim memories. However, this place also presents a great opportunity for photographers to take classic shots.

Came here to witness the view of Freedom Tower/Ground Zero. It was spectacular to see at night. Must visit!

Empty Sky Memorial's location and design are very appropriate in every way. It is sophisticated and beautiful. It honours 9/11 victims who lived in New Jersey at the time and does so in a very respectful way. Stunning view of Manhattan and you can see The Freedom Tower, that was built on Ground Zero, right through the Memorial. It is... More

This is a very nice memorial, and well done architecturally. I appreciated the way the sight lines were set up to show where the Twin Towers used to stand. Not as celebrated as other memorials on Manhattan, but this is still a great place to spend some time, especially if you are waiting for a ferry to Liberty Island.

This is the first 9-11 memorial I've ever visited and feels as solemn as it should be. I think the basic idea was to place a silhouette of the twin towers against the current manhattan skyline. Though my photo doesn't seem to do justice to the idea, it isn't any less pretty to look at. Its a good place to... More

A very moving piece, one of many dotted around Manhattan and New Jersey which is a permanent reminder of the atrocities of 9/11, sadly spoiled by people letting children run around shouting and screaming and the constant flow of people taking smiley selfies. It would be best visited first thing in the morning or at dusk when its a little... More

This was every weekend hangout zone for us. There are many activities which go on in the Colosseum area. Beautiful; walking zone overlooking back side of statue of liberty. One place from where you can view complete Manhattan. Evenings are cozy and romantic.
