I came here as a visitor to the island, checking out the sights in walking distance to the ferry terminal. No one was here and it was a memorial to the victims of 9/11 from SI.

Gorgeous. Peaceful. Respectful. It's a shame it's not widely known. Stand between the postcards and look directly at the trade center....it's beautiful at night time. Very well done memorial.
