world trade center site

Is there a charge to see this? Also if so where do you get the tickets? And about how much time do you think we should allow to see this? I am on a short visit and want to get in as much as I can. Thanks!

We didn't incurr any charge anywhere at the WTC site. Not sure what you mean. There is an exhibition, shops and cafes and all the 1000's of people that work there. Nice place worth a visit. The waterfront outside is also very nice.

I didn't know how the layout of the place is if there is a building or it's all outside or if there is a charge of anykind or not. Thanks!

It's basically the financial district, lots of tower blocks and Ground Zero. The WTC being the biggest building with shops (gap etc), cafes and restaurants. It also has a great exhibition of 9/11 and the future plans, well worth a visit. No charge at all.

There is an exhibit inside St. Paul's Church which is across the street from the World Trade Center site. It's free and a lovely church. The actual site is a construction site.

The World Trade Center was a business and shopping plaza. Now, that everything is gone, it is a construction site.

You can walk around 3 sides of the perimeter - Vesey Street, Church Street and Liberty Street. (one side is West Street, a small highway.)

There is a visitor's kiosk near the corner of Vesey and Church. You can get wonderful free maps there. Ask for the one with the dark blue cover.

Across the street from the visitor's kiosk is St. Paul's Chapel. Not only is this where Pres. Goerge Washington worshipped, but it is now a living testament to all the people of the WTC. Incredible - do not miss it. Entrance is on Broadway.

Across the street on Church Street is the Milenium Hotel and Century 21 - a famous shopping destination. At the corner of Liberty and Church is Zuccotti Plaza. This plaza was rebuilt, but is still home to the iconic statue "Doublecheck". Look carefull near Church Street, you might miss it.

Down Liberty Street is the Tribute Center (suggested donation $10) and the Engine Co. 10 and Ladder Co. 10 Firehouse. They also offer walking tours (suggested donation $10)

Take the stairs up to the Liberty Street footbridge to see the site from above. This will lead you to the World Financial Center, across West Street, another business, dining and shopping plaza. You can also get a good view of the WTC site from the American Express building.

I'd highly reco checking out these websites and maps. You can take a "virtual tour" of the area.

You can also take a free walking tour of the Wall Street area, every Thursday and Saturday:

huh??

Get a grip.

I live in Battery Park City and walk by the site twice a day to and from work.

If I take a moment to look around I can see how emotional most people get when looking at the site and i, for one am glad people are still coming to remember because most of us new yorkers, or at least those that live in the area don't give it a second look anymore.

We can't. Can you imagine getting emotional everytime you walk by?? we'd all be nuts.

So thank you visitors for coming and remembering!

someone was complaining about people coming to visit and taking

photos. Gawking at the tragedy. I'm however using much nicer

language than the poster used.
