The beautifully constructed Catholic Memorial at Ground Zero is a quiet, somber place to visit. Very emotional, heart breaking and sad that it was built after a devastating event where life used to be happier and families used to be together. I cried, our tour guide cried too.

This memorial is on the site of where the twin towers stood. Very emotional as you read the names engraved on the stones surrounding the memorial. Make sure you plan a trip round the memorial shop beside the memorial.
