Other 9/11 related places of interest

This is our 4th visit to NYC since 9/11 and in June we went to the memorial site. We aren't going to do that this time but while we are here we would be interested in seeing anything else which is important to see related to 9/11. I'd heard a church yard was important? Any suggestions would be welcomed

I'm assuming by churchyard you mean St. Paul's Chapel across the street from the World Trade Center site. The memorial is inside the church.

St. Paul's Chapel is a "must see" IMHO. Very moving. Reflective. Authentic.

You might want to do a tour from the tribute center

You might want to see the small Sept 11th exhibit at the New York Historical Society when you visit their World War II exhibit. And speaking of World War II - if you are interested in disasters created by human beings there are a lot of War related exhibits on now.

The fire department museum has a small but moving exhibit.

There is also Trinity Church which is not far from St Paul's which has an upside down tree (mainly the roots) just to the left of the entrance that was uprooted during 9/11. It's also beautiful inside Trinity Church.

I always make time to visit the Sphere and the eternal flame in Battery Park. Very moving in my opinion and I always spend some time there whenever I am in NYC.

As Nywhiz suggested do not miss the Tribute Centre and the tour provided by them. Highlight of our NYC trip in August.
