The National September 11 Memorial & Museum is a place of remembrance honoring those who perished in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993. The 9/11 Memorial consists of two massive pools set within the original footprints of the Twin Towers with 30-foot waterfalls cascading down their sides. The nearly 3,000 names of the men, women, and children killed in the attacks are inscribed into bronze parapets surrounding the twin Memorial pools. The 9/11 Memorial is open daily from 7:30 a.m. - 9:00 p.m. and is free to the public. The 9/11 Memorial Museum displays monumental artifacts linked to the events of 9/11, while presenting intimate stories of loss, compassion, reckoning and recovery that are central to telling the story of the 2001 and 1993 attacks and the aftermath. It also explores the global impact of 9/11 and its continuing significance. The 9/11 Memorial Museum is open Sun - Thu, 9:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m., last entry at 6:00 p.m. and Fri and Sat, 9:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m., last entry at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are required. Open Daily.

Well-designed and thought-out memorial to the victims of this criminal act of cowardice. We all should visit. The site of the twin towers are inscribed with the names of the victims, and this is a must-see memorial.

There's a subway map you can download on your phone. The subways run on a colored system and it was easier for me after I downloaded it. We also just asked the person down in the subway system. It never hurts to ask!

There's a subway station at Grand Central Station. Looks like you can take the 4-5-6 Train, and switch to the L Train at 14th St/Union Station terminal. Should be about 20 minutes in total. Taxi might be a better option... More
