This is built in memory of the 911 loss lives. It has a nice setting where you can see the NYC view and marble stone curved with people's name who lost their life in the 911.

Nice park with 9/11 Memorial and views of NYC. Massive crowds on certain occasions but that is to be expected.

Great place for a picnic, and clear views of the NYC skyline. Nicely done memorial to all who died on 9/11. Parking can be somewhat limited, depending of time of day and day of the week.
