New 9/11 Memorial at NYC's World Trade Centre
9/11 was an event that shook New York, America and the world. 10 years on and with the unveiling of the outstanding memorial, it’s well worth taking a day to pay homage to the victims of 9/11 when visiting New York City.
The 9/11 memorial, which opened to the public at the end of 2011, is a free-ticketed memorial featuring two impressive fountains that stand in the footprints of the Twin Towers. In just fourth months the site has welcomed it’s over a million visitors.
Watch the new One World Trade Centre or ‘Freedom Tower’ rise week by week when catching cheap NYC flights.
The National September 11 Memorial Museum will further honour those who died in the additional February 26, 1993 attacks. Showcasing related artwork, surviving accounts and many interactive features, why not discover something new at America’s most moving exhibition when it opens later in 2012.
Walk around beautiful Battery Park and admire the many new skyscrapers rising around the World Trade Centre site. Reflect over a downtown lunch in TriBeca or Chinatown or get a better view of the city by taking the famous walkway along the Brooklyn Bridge. The 9/11 memorial has become a core feature in the world’s most cultural city, one well-worth checking out.
